8.14 Police Car

I've created modern police cars in the recent past, but not a period one. I was looking forward to challenging myself with creating a convincing "bubblegum machine," as well as headlights, taillights, and a spotlight. I started by building a mechanism to make the spinning light:

After I completed the mechanism, I installed it in the car—or, more precisely, I assembled the car around the mechanism.


I'm quite aware that real police car lights have two lamps in them, whereas mine has only one. It was impractical to add a second LED, so everyone will simply have to deal with what looks like a European-style light.
