    Truck guy it was about two weeks behind but that was for some updates that we made. We also had Minuteman do some extras for us. We have a carnival in the summer as we even own our own merry go round and ferris wheel. we take the profits from that and do things for the dept so that the taxpayers dont have to foot the bill, We had it lettered at the dealer in Mass as well as some equipment mounted there as well. they mounted the radio as well as the fire com. Island you are right. this has been a long project and to see the final product in our house will be nice and I will have a big smile. I will post some pics, tomorrow nite,

    I agree, but those are not mirrors Buff...they are; "blindspot creating, new style, super-secret, satellite freq. [radio] antennas."

    Actually I wish all our trucks had them. after seeing the difference. I like them. It is not going to be any different than branches whacking a west coast.

    Hey TC when we decide on a nite at the roadhouse think we can get Island to join us. Maybe we can get the boys up on the coast to drive down as well!

    Very nice! While I'm not a big fan of these mirrors "look" but we can never seem to keep our West Coast mirrors tight enough to not vibrate, so I'd take function over form any day.

    With Island we got a chance.Adam's warden seldom lets him out of the village,and probably NEVER to hook up with this band of rag tag motley pirates. I couldn't even get him out to check out E-1 while they were in the planning stages on his.I think his wife keeps him on a VERY tight leash. I don't know Adam's wife but somehow I think I'd like her,hehe T.C.

    Isnt the image in the mirror distorted by the curvature of the windshield glass? And how am I supposed to check my hair if I see a hot chick?
