I would do that too, if I had 92-95 corners

I would think there is enough room in the center amber lights to fit a stobe in there.

You won't fit a Whelen strobe in the corner lamps. There'* not enough depth inside and not enough clearance in the back.

with enough work anything is possible. could make the turn bulb the top portion and the strobe the lower.

Being in law enforcement myself, I can tell you this. Yes, it is illegal to use flashers and/or strobes on the road if you are not a law enforcement official. Off road and show use, well, then it'* definitely cool. But, if you go with strobes, yes you will need to drill holes in your light housings and run them on their own circuit. But, if you just want flashers, you can get the wig-way systems that you see in most police catalogues. They pretty much work in just about every car. It'* a simple box that you splice into the lines going to your head lights or tail lights.

Just got a Chief supply catolog and the above listed is what I would like to get. They have exctly what you described I will install once I get my tranny fixed. I did not want police strobes because of the fact that I am not a police officer(I am a security officer) and the car is not used for law enfocement purposes just security purposes.
