Get some nitro fuel line and get the hose/nozzle spray unit working on the top of the ladder.

Thats very nice! I have to ask, what does a fire truck haul around in a trailer?

You know you have to take some better pics and send em in. What is a better way of saying nice work CC?!!!

No video yet. I was going to make one yesterday but the cab was rubbing the tire and I had to find out why I had to adj the leafspring shackle and well need the wife to hold the camera. And DD it pulls anything it wants to in the trailer :lol: :lol: . It's going to be an equipment trailer.

Ah yes, that makes good sense. They can haul around extra hose, some spare fire hydrants to do some water work in the streets.

Maybe even a few kegs and a BBQ. (Hint: You can make them out of scrap plastic and lexan you have.)

Make it look like the party trailer for the local fire dept. I really think some well snapped photos sent to RCCA is a good idea again.
