We're almost there! The trolls have been working a bit of OT to get things done. The last thing will be to finish off the hose bed and access to the rear seat. Then we will place it all in the finished category!
The little tool in front of the truck is the "Official Door Opener". I dressed it up a bit with an eagle and some gold leaf!
So instead of using fingers or tweezers to open the cab doors, you can just turn the handle with it and they will open.
The right side of the rig is pretty Spartan but that is the way the original truck was. Strictly business.
A look at the back shows the hand rails, tail lights, rollers for the booster hose, the extinguisher and axe all in position. The hose covers are sheet plastic stock made to look like painted plywood as the full size ones were. And they used sewn canvas as covers for the back.
With one cover removed the hose load is open for inspection. It's not as full as it looks! The first two layers are short folded pieces about 1" long. Behind them is a plastic box. The succeeding layers are on top and helps to save on sewing elastic! The trolls didn't cheat, I did!
