    I have a patriot lfl with 6 strobe housings, is there a way to change the tubes from clear to amber?

    also anyone on here interested in amber lens and a pair of strobe housings?

    If they are strobes. Then the amber covers should come off easily. there's a screw on one side of the lens that holds it over the strobe tube. this is on the inner lens. if there's no inner lens then the strobe tubes are clear. and its just amber color form the outer lenses. hopefully this make sense?

    unlike "pigtail" strobes that are colored glass most strobe bars from whelen are clear tubes with colored lenses unless you get LEDS clear when off colored turned on ....

    I think I spoke to you on the phone the other day but in case that was not you, its not possible. You have to use the Amber lenses as Whelen never offered colored strobe tubes in lightbars.
