Dude! leave it on and everyone will think you are 5-0 and move out of your way! Oh yeah, paint it black and tint the glass and they'll think it's an unmarked and give you plenty of space! :bigthumb:

That's a No-No in our state, even if your car is an ex-police package.

It's tolerated, because they are built into the car, but the 'impersonation of a peace officer' laws here denote that having an externally mounted spotlight is not legal.

I wasn't serious, I was just making a joke. Sorry, not a good one.

To answer the OP's question, remove the spotlight by removing all the screws, pulling it out and cutting the wires and capping them (should be easy enough to figure out) and replace the window pillar interior cover with a factory part. The outside needs to be body worked and re-painted. It should all be easy enough to do. You might just be able to take it to a body shop and they'll do the whole thing for not too much.

Hope this helps.

Where are you, Russia?
Sounds like BS to me.
How about an externally mounted spotlight on a power company utility truck?
I'ld like to see the statute on that.

Where da hell you live? It's cabs running around here and Assisted living vehicles running around here that are Crown Victorias and they look just like the police. Hell the police have auctions often selling used retired cars with the spotlight still on.

Alright thanks for the help on it so how much you think it would be to fix the exterior part once i remove the part or should i look for a plug for it like what they did with the holes on the roof?

Less than $50 to fill the hole and paint the A pillar is what I would expect. You can go with a plug but it depends on how ugly the hole is once you get the light out.
