Bart! The one you did on paint isn't bad at all. I thought I'd take a try at it.

If anything, they're pretty close. Too bad there's only two and not four. See image:

Those look REALLY close. Thanks for the refrence image PursuitSpecial, you can almost make out the blue Hella logo on them. The lenses appear to be clear in the film, but the ebay lights have a veined lens. Still super close. Unfortunately there arwe only two and the guy will only ship within germany..... :roll:

I actually have an inquiry going with Hella USA right now on the correct part number, and a pending order!!

The current update is that I have been spending all of my (very little) spare time on the XA Bat, readying it for the Roadwar event thet just happened in Seattle. Now that is past and I am begining to turn my attentions to the cobra truck again. I should have some actual progress to report before too long. At least how I make out with these Hella lights.

Bad Cop: Nice Paint version, wish I could build the truck that easy, but then it would be a cartoon and I could only drive it if I was hanging out with Roger Rabbit or Tow Mater.

Anything new on this build? I really want to see it happen!

I'd consider doing it myself, but it's cool that you got dibs.

I have some vague thoughts about making the Lone Wolf, but I doubt that will ever happen.

A Lone wolf would be cool..... Dave could do it!

I am finally getting back to the teardown work on the F100, looks like a winter project......
