or FKW03toplight
FTC11 Screwbase or FKW03MC Magentic with CigKit

2) A BASIC TOPLIGHT; For recognition that you ARE a professional taxicab. We recommend a permanently mounted type, not a magnetic, but you may choose either.

You can select one of three meters, NOTE: the last (S700) will be slightly more. See elsewhere on this website for meter and toplight features and details. Please carefully type your TEXT for the toplight - the exact lettering you want. Add your telephone number for us to call if necessary, to clarify - we want to get it right the first time!! Be sure to give us the exact make model and year of vehicle for the instruction package. If you want us to pre-program your meter, you MUST E-MAIL us your rates, including Flag Drop (turn on fee), Mileage Rate and fractions, Waiting time amount (per minute or per hour), and Extras amount if you plan to use extras.
