    Well at least they are good unit not like Cobras or something :wink:

    If they have metal cases you can use them to block the wheels when you jack up the car

    Or maybe sell on eBay, you do not see very many older Beltronics on ebay, but lots and lots of Escorts and Passport and Fuzzbuster.

    Seriously, you could adjust the screws and maybe turn it into a RDD but it would probably only detect your RD...

    or if things go in a good way, it will never be able to detect your RD :wink: :wink:

    What do they look like?

    Put them on Ebay. Someone in an area the RDs are banned will buy them for donar detectors when the blue & red lights come on behind them.

    Good idea to sell on ebay , but I never used it and do not have confidence in using this tool , too many horrors history.

    Also I have this old V-1 and a 1994 Laser Alert LA132 from Bel

    The V1 can be upgraded but the Bel should be put on Ebay or used as a door choke.
