    Im looking for a Police Light Bar that goes on top the Binaltech Red Alert .. Im going to make my own RA useing an extra Smokescreen i got. I figure ill never get the real deal anytime soon so ill just try my hand at making a repaint lol. They are pretty much the same mold except for the tail fin on the back. Does anyone have a extra lightbar they dont need or know if there is some kind of model kit that i can buy that has the same kind ??? Oh and if possible the two small red lights that go on the front bumper ?
    PM me if you can help me out

    UPDATE*** I just realized that smokescreens head if different so if anyone has a extra Silverstreak head they dont need please let me know on that also

    Thanks Guys

    -Curt

    I got this in the want area too but hope you dont mind me posting it here, i figure i would have better luck cause this is the kitbash thread and thats kinda what ill be doing .

    If its the V-shaped one like Alt Prowl had, you shouldn't have too hard of a problem finding one.....there were quite a few customs made using Prowl....I'm sure something will turn up for you.

    And HTS still has Rico for 9.99...I say this because Rico and Silverstreaks head are identical in looks...just different paint apps.

    Also, if you aren't picky about lightbars, TRU has some model kits and if you are lucky, they hvae the Robo-1 from Robocop. I got one lightbar off there. Have no idea where it is though...

    Also, Autolooper has the same lightbar.

    I am taking the lightbar off, but I'm attaching it to a repainted Ricochet, to mimick a BT Alert, or in my case Prowl. Figure Id use the Acura later so I wanted to fill in the holes.
    Not sure if youre looking for that specific style, but dollor stores have plenty of cop cars that can be cannibalized.
    or you can try here

    Check with Vector, I've got an old custom of his made from Prowl [Judging by the bumps on the roof] he might still have the Light Bar.

    Bumper lights might be a little harder to come by.

    Now if you want to go about it a different route. You can find an Alt Prowl, get a spare Subaru head, and the reprolabels kit and make the Acura Red Alert.
