This one is/was a fire truck with a big gasoline engine. You can tell this based on the motor hood (additional cooling slots, (closed) hole for water pump), the flippable stairs on the side and the flat rear.
- Sping just came around the corner = time to work on the vehicle itself, at least if there is some spare time friends, family and job do not require...
- I just got two professional grade somewhat hacked/modded 1980s/1990s TIG welders with lots of accessories (pressure regulators, hose packages etc. and a giant bottle of Argon...). They got electronic high frequency starters and one of them gives nasty electric shocks combined with low output power and a rusty enclosure... so I have to fix them / clean them up. After that it should be possible to do fine precision work (e.g. 0.7mm sheet metal butt welding for skin parts).
- Acquired a set of nice additional head lights which mount next to the original ones right and left of the bonnet, 55 bright Watts each :) (the original head lights are about as bright as a flashlight with dying batteries...)
