Great thread! I've owned my Getaway for quite a few years. John Ross, Pinball Plus, turned me on to them. Mine's running L5. I was a police officer (retired last year with almost 30 years on the street) so had plenty of high speed chases over the years. I also was an EVOC (emergency vehicle operator course) instructor for many years. So the Getaway was a natural for me. I like the flasher mod on the top of the back box some of you guys have done. When I got mine one of the first mods was to add a lightbar up there. I bought a Federal Steethawk bar from the cities used equipment store. I didn't want to remove the beacon because I don't like to mess with the originality too much. So I just set my bar across the Getaway over onto the Black Knight 2000 next door. I put a set of lugs on the lower back of the light bar wired into the positive and neutral of the light bar. I got a Sears rolling big amp battery charger parked next to the BK2K. Clamp the cables onto the studs. Set the charger on like 50 amp hold. Then, I made a electrical box with a receptacle/outlet on it. Inside is a 12volt dc relay. A heavy duty extension cord powers this box, plugged into the wall. Now, the beacon runs on like 18 volt a/c? So I tapped into that and wired in a bridge rectifier to convert to roughly 12 volt d/c. Then I put a two conductor common speaker connector on the outside of the top box. So, when the beacon comes on you see 12 volts d/c on these two connectors. I used a piece of speaker wire to connect to the electrical box with the receptacle. That 12 volts causes the relay to pull in and energize the 120 volt receptacle, thereby powering up the rolling battery charger, lighting up the light bar. It's worked great for many years. I also put a manual light switch in the relay box so the kids can turn on the light bar just by hitting the switch if they want. I really like it when it comes on. The halogen bulbs I think are better in this application than a LED light bar like all the squads have now. I've stood around lots of squads with the LED bars going and they are just too darn bright and annoying for a game room application like this. Now, let's see if I can get some pictures to post here.
