Re: how to Cut out the FLASHER RELAY IN THE RED LIGHT.

In Illinois, any lights above 48" from the ground have to be covered while on the roadway.

Re: how to Cut out the FLASHER RELAY IN THE RED LIGHT.

I plan to wire my flashing lights in the reat to my brake and turn signal lights as well as the amber ones in the front for turn signals. The red ones, I was planning on putting somesort of carriage lamp or old ship navigation lights (for show) the red on the left and green on the right. I even thought of putting a rotating beacon (amber) on the top as a Submarine Identification Light and painting my bus flat black. I just don't think that I could convince the Hwy Patrol that my monster is a submarine.

Sure ya can! Just leave it yellow, add a periscope (make from PVC pipe), replace the windows with (or frame to look like) round portholes, add silhouettes of John, Paul, George & Ringo in selected portholes. If pulled over, ensure dive / surface claxon sounds and use a PA system to broadcast crew instructions / appropriate sound effects as he approaches.

Too bad ya don't have a jacuzzi like Lapeer, you could blow the water like you're surfacing. . .just wait until he's walking up to the sub (spelled backwards is bus) to blow out the bilges! Make sure your stereo is blasting Sgt. Pepper music!

If he still wants to ticket ya, just call him a local Yoko (as opposed to yokel).

If ya still want to paint it gray, add a couple missile silo lids on top and nuclear warning signs instead of Beatles silhouettes in the portholes. Large diameter PVC pipe could be made to look like torpedo tubes, front and rear. Add servo controlled lids and watch his eyes open as wide as the torpedo tubes while they're opening (along with all the appropriate sound effects over PA system)!

OK, I'm having too much fun here with the prescription drugs they gave me after surgery, I better stop now. Man, there's just so-o-o-o-o much fun stuff you can do with a bus!
