so far so good. i like the hose bed the best. why the different colors? i read about the red ones but why is this white and blue?
I ran out of green paint and I didn't want to have a complete white engine so I added the blue into it. I am liking it more than the green, but I am still keeping the green. Once I get more green paint the blue will come out and the green will got in along with half the cab being green. Or it depends on what everyone here thinks.
The hosebed is something totally different. There is going to be 1 - 2" handline along with a 3" handline. The 3" will only get deployed on big fires because it will have the blitzfire hooked up to it. Yes I know this hosebed is completely different from the standard PLFD hosebed.
