Does Anyone know the Answer?
Many fire apparatus manufacturers are using a grey speckle coating material inside the compartments as opposed to painting them. Anyone know the name of the coating or who supplies it ? Thanks.

If the stuff your talking about is the same stuff I'm thinking of - then try looking at some of the truck accesory shops in the area.
I'm thinking this is the same material that spray in truck bed liners are made from. If so, you can probably get a lead on the materials from them or perhaps even cut a deal with them on getting your compartments done.
Just a thought. Good luck in the search.
Ooops - almost forgot. That bed liner material can be custom colored to your taste too. So you could actually get it color matched to your truck.

Go the the National Association of Emergency Vehicle Technicans site at the following address: http://www.naevt.org/disc1_tocf.htm
These guys can answer any question dealing with emergency vehicles. They seem to be the real pros of the business.

I think it's called Zolatone Splatter Paint. Most Hardware stores have something simalar in the Rustoleum line.
