The IR lights don't reflect back much and they don't really do anything at night, they're pretty weak.I'm curious about the camera. Does it have IR lights for night time? And how is the reflection back from them with the glass?
Haha well the Impala actually has pretty good visibility, I never liked cars because I felt low to the ground, it actually sits up a bit for a car which is nice.I'm still trying to figure out how he sees the road. Of course if I was over 5' tall it would help....
Thanks Keith! I'm looking forward to seeing yours in person.You have come a long way my friend a LONG beautiful way. That looks very nice. I still want your 900MHz freqs and are you APRSing yet?
Thank you Mike!Very nice job you've done with the car!
Thanks, caught me by surprise so I only had my phone with me for pictures. It was just a severe squall line. At this point I'll take anything storm related and this was the first chase in the Impala, a good test for working bugs out.Really nice pictures and setup,but what kind of storm were you chasing? Rain or thunder?
Thanks, yours too! I'm familiar with that threadGreat looking install!
It was a good test for spotting. We got some small hail down here in Cowley County, KS. Here is my install http://forums.radioreference.com/pictures-your-shack-mobile-setup/229798-2004-ford-expedition-install-2.html
It's a tough car, I really like the Impala police package. Just about everything on the car is heavy duty which gives you piece of mind during intense driving conditions.That Impala looks tough.....did you install any warning lights?
If so, any pics?
Ok, think about getting some rear deck strobes..maybe a traffic arrow director typa thingIt's a tough car, I really like the Impala police package. Just about everything on the car is heavy duty which gives you piece of mind during intense driving conditions.
It just has a rear taillight flasher. In the picture you can see the reverse light on, it flashes brakes/reverse.
Not a bad idea, I just wanted something simple. I rarely use the lights but occasionally there is a need while chasing. Just be careful with traffic advisor's, these days people will look for an excuse to sue. It sucks!Ok, think about getting some rear deck strobes..maybe a traffic arrow director typa thing

What're you referring to? There's a DVR camera just below the rear view mirror. In that picture I think the LCD is folded down, normally it's folded up so it doesn't block my view. Since I was sitting and that was the first storm I've caught with it I was checking to see what video looked like.what is in pic. #3??
does it block your view on the dash?????
(im not gonna' go on if it's legal or not.)
Well I would think that you'd get sued faster if you had no lights st all....?Not a bad idea, I just wanted something simple. I rarely use the lights but occasionally there is a need while chasing. Just be careful with traffic advisor's, these days people will look for an excuse to sue. It sucks!
Well you'd think, unfortunately these days if somebody gets into an accident being advised which way to go using your lights, you're the one at fault. No idea how that makes sense it's just the unfortunate way it works it's as if common sense goes out the window. My policy is to always park off the road so I don't NEED lights, there are always times where you come across a tree in the road. That's the time I stop and block the road, local law enforcement has much better things to be doing at that time than guarding a tree.Well I would think that you'd get sued faster if you had no lights st all....?
With this mounted on your rear deck, you'd be able to direct traffic around you if you needed to pull over on the side of the road, if not you could still use it was warning lights by hitting a button on your dashboard......either way it's visibility n it make it allot safer.....
I think it would really set the ex cruiser off.......you already have the plastic rear seat n the prisoner transport cage.......
