Code 3 MX-7000 light resto this past weekend...

Recommended Posts

I picked up a Code 3 MX-7000 58" light bar for my truck to plow snow this winter..

I paid too much (found out after the fact) for it($300). It had extremely oxidized lenses, bulbs out, failed flashers, and a draggy rotater. No switch head, no gutter brackets, the list goes on. Most was found out after I got it home.

So I:

[*]disassembled it COMPLETELY

[*]rewired portions that needed attention

[*]rebuilt rotator motor (turned armature, re-faced brushes, etc.)

[*]sanded and polished every lens

[*]replaced all bulbs

[*]replaced flashers

I'll be making a 5-switch control box for it, possibly this week. A fuse block and Bosch SPST relays will be used for each light circuit.

As it sits right now..

I'll get more pics up, this evening..

I could've gotten an LED mini bar for what I paid for this (and probably should have) but this was a fun little project, and adding different options to it is quite inexpensive. Something to tinker with for my snow plowing, I guess :)
