Emergency Lighting

I actually don't own a cobalt, my sister does. We are both members of our local volunteer fire dept. She is having me do the install of emergency lighting in her cobalt and I need tech advice from cobalt experts.

The Plan:
dash light, hardwired (mini phantom)
wig-wag headlights
2 tir-3 grill lights
2 tir-3 deck lights

The Questions:
How are the headlights switched? Positive or ground?
Where is the best place to grab the power for all this?

I'm sure I'll have more questions soon...

Thanks in advance

The single Whelen Talon either on the dash or mounted on headliner flush to the windshild, offers a neat, low profile install with exceptional visibility. All those other additional lights and wig-wag headlamps on a POV scream clown car or a wannabe.

YES!!! I love this thread. Actually I have a wig-wag setup on my highbeams, STL strobe lights in the corner lights and reverse lights, yellow/white flashing LEDs around, I also have knight rider scanner lights and white underglow. I might be putting on a single flashing LED dash light above my mirror. Also check out my f150 lighting
