wow. I like that. Is it really a working firetruck (pump and everything)? or just a show kind of thing? I know VW made a lot of commercial vehicles, but i've never seen a fire truck. Very Happy . if it is real, did it use another VW engine to power it or something?

If you're doing the same on Saturday I may come up and help.


Did the same today, but Sat should be going to Augusta to drive a u-haul back, then camping that night just a bit south of here. Check the FMBC upcomming events, hope to make it to Laurens housewarming party then. Depends on how long it takes me to move the kids back home!!! Had a good weekend planned but the offspring kinda messed it up.....

Finally finished installing heaterboxes on my 72. gets really hot really quick, lol. I also took apart my air box (fan didn't work), and cleaned/ lubed the bearings, and it worked perfectly. the last thing i need to do on the air ducting set-up are the two plastic pieces, that go on either side of the airbox, that go to the defroster for the windshield. I can't figure out how to get those little buggers back in. the two small fresh air hoses (bout 1 inch in diameter) that come from the heaterchannels, go to these two plastic pieces, to get warm air to the defroster if need be. I think i may try to redo this somehow, to incorperate the A/C as well. just means a little more ducting to run.

The fire truck is home made. I'm going to drive it in parades and take it to shows and events. It has a slide-out grill for cooking and I'll be selling burgers and brats and stuff. It'll eventually look something like this:

someone on here was saying that those adjustable spring plates break easily, and that they've had them break on them. Might want to consider that, lol. it would suck to have your spring plate break while driving, especially being that low Shocked

yea fearthefat told me bout that^^^... although ive been running them for over a year now, no problems so far! plus its nice to be able to dial them in without reseting the clicks

Keep in mind adj plates make for tight clearances with fat tires!

BOught a small piece of mirrored plexiglass and shaped it with a belt sander to fit the passenger sdie mirror. It snapped right in without any glue or anything. I'd actually like to glue it in but now I can't seem to pull it out. So I guess it's statying as is.

I got a header and single muffler from EMPI for my 69 Bay and it sounds great. The engine started just fine after 18 months of sitting outside. Now I need to do some wiring.
