That's right, you have family in Lancaster county, right.
Actually, Lancaster, Lebanon, Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery. My family is from Montgomery, but some have emigrated to surrounding counties.
Thanks, Mark

I sandblasted, repaired, and painted an ICC cab light bar to mount on the back of my truck.


I changed the lenses from amber to red and mounted it on the back of the hoist subframe.
I still can't load more than one photo to a post.

I temporarily wired them all to a battery.
Thanks, Mark

Thanks! Bob The three lenses that I used in the light bar are actually too small. I had to machine a ring to center them and make them large enough for the snap ring to hold them in place. The right hand bed corner lense doesn't match the rest, but I will use it until, if and when, I find another Cats-Eye brand lense. I am very pleased with how the lights look.
Thanks again, Mark

Thanks, Abe. I look at every swap meet and flea market I go to. Another one will turn up eventually.
