Good idea! If I did that at my house I would have half neighborhood calling the constable or worse, the city building inspectors. I have had them call Air Quality Control and the Fire Department twice. AQC came out and found nothing as I had already put the spray equipment away and the Fire Marshall tried to make my life hell. The Fire Department came the last time two years ago with lights on (no siren) and ended up laughing about the idiot neighbor who couldn't mind his own business.
Good luck with your firetruck build! And may you have great neighbors...
Thanks, I do have great neighbors. They like to ogle sometimes when I am working. The lift set up was preety befee, two 2 x 10's, 16ft.
I first time I put all the scafolding up to support the end.
The subsequent times, I just extend the beam out the support I built in the window. The cab, I found out only weighs 300#. I like the system because its there when I need it, hidden when I dont. A nice chain block completed the deal.
Looks great Jim. I don't know what you are talking about when you said your truck won't be as nice as mine. I beg to differ!! Its really coming along and I like the history on the truck. Any luck trying to contact the former department to see if they have any more photos or history?
