Default Federal Signal Q1B Restoration with Kevin O'Connell

Many, many, many thanks to Kevin O'Connell who spent a weekend with me back in November 2017 playing with sirens and showing

In this time, I learned how to disassemble/reassemble/test the Q1/Q2 product. Also some quality time with painting to match Federal's original finish. Final result shown after a photo of Kevin at his lathe. This Q1B is intended for my 1961 Eureka-Cadillac "Hi-Boy" model ambulance - it being the most-likely siren on that vehicle. Final result looks brand new, and surely caused confusion with TSA as it resided in my carry-on for the flight home.

Thank you again Kevin! A real privilege.
