    Looks good only problem is The lights should (legally) be red since they are facing the back.

    The brighter ones in the pics are flush mounted leds on the sides(a little brighter than I thought) thinking of a dimmer. The top corners are led strobes that come on with the rotator.

    Oh I take my last comment back it looked like you had those light on the back in the first picture but if they are on the side then they should be legal. Looks great ether way.

    I cut the logo out of 1/16" steel with a plasma cutter, Then wrapped the edge and put a back on it . it's 3/8" thick and has yellow led strip lights wrapped around the inside of it. The back is welded to the rack and there is 4 bolts through it so the logo will come off. (so if i get tired of it i can change to a different logo). This is the logo with the edge welded on it before it was cleaned up with the grinder.
