    It took a while. But here's a couple crappy videos, the camera I guess wasn't quick enough to show the strobes, but they were in triple burst, vid makes it look like they were blinking once, slowly.
    Click the link for the rest of the pictures, they're too big for here and I don't feel like resizing them.

    Sure did. A lot of wires. A lot of time. It sucked really, but I couldn't imagine paying someone.

    I'd like to add a special thanks to John from safety lighting too

    Tool box lights are Whelen LIN4's
    Whelen 690 strobes (clear)
    Code 3 420 dual halogen rotator on top

    Thanks everyone

    Super clean install.

    When I put my edge on my roof I got a switch box It was 100 bucks new. Thinking of my edge I really need to fix it.

    Why do you have so many switch's? Didn't you tie the strobes and the amber leds together?

    Switch 1 : Roof light
    Switch 2 : Front Strobes
    Switch 3 : Rear Strobes
    Switch 4 : Lin4's
    Switch 5 : 2 55w reverse lights mounted under bumper
    Switch 6 : Salter

    Little round switches change the pattern of the strobes and Lin4's

    You have to pop the big light cover off, then theres 2 screws, then pull it down. theres a clip in the back

    I like the use of the switches in that location we have the same taste haha... i only have 2 up there though red led for the rear amber for the front and then a momentary switch under the dash over the brake pedal for the flash patterns
