    I can see where you're coming from, but if Im not mistaken, its a felony to have them installed on a street car.

    Yeah, it is. Also would probably be charged with impersonation of an authority figure.

    You basically wire it into a on-off switch.

    Actually...it's more like wire it to an automotive relay.

    there are 4 pins:
    -Constant voltage (hooks up to the battery, with a fuse, probably a 10 amp should be fine)
    -Ground

    -Switch
    -to the strobes.

    Strobes

    The strobes have two wires. one is a positive and of cousres one is negative.

    The switch I purchased has two pins .

    If i wire the a 10 fused wire to the positive side to the switch and then to the light can I just wire the negative some were else in the engine bay ?

    basically.

    Using a relay, though a little more complex, assures full power when switched on.

    Why do you constantly attach that image? Yes, it's great and all... but there's NO need to keep on attaching that same picture!
