  1. 👍 Good job, it had been enjoyable watching this project from the beginning to the end. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  2. I love talking my Mack fire engines out for rides. It’s my opinion that the folks I’ve met in both the fire truck world and truck world are awesome people. I’ve helped and been helped by total strangers which has often developed into cherished relationships.
  3. Cool, I bet you’re excited for her to arrive. I’m familiar with Enniskillen. My wife’s uncle would go shooting at Crom Castle. One of my friends family is from Fivemiletown and I used to have a connection in a a a a Belleek. Oddly enough my friends cousin knew my wife’s uncle. It’s just shows how small the world is. Don
  4. Hello I think that’s a cool idea to import the truck. Where in Northern Ireland are you from. My mother in-law was from Dromore County Down. She was the only one in her family to come to the states so my wife and I go over to see her family. My interest is in fire apparatus and I always wanted to import a Green Goddess.
  5. Every time I’ve registered a truck in CT with classic plates I had a federal annual inspection done. It makes the transaction go smoother.
  6. According to a quick search on the internet the photo is from Security Road located in Hagerstown MD. The building appears to be in a complex owned by LaFarge Holcim which is a concrete plant/ precast facility.
  7. Awesome thanks, I just hung my 1992 MACK calendar on the wall.
  8. Thanks for the update. I love seeing other people’s projects.
  9. I would be interested to know what you come up with when you remount the trim. I’ve been wondering what to use myself. I was thinking about getting a copy of the drawings from the MACK museum and getting them reproduced. Good luck Don
  10. Welcome aboard, yeah I have not seen any Mack trucks while over visiting my wife’s family and I sure have not seen any NASCAR’s while visiting. Her cousins husband is in to rally cars and competes several times a year. They are in Whales just outside of Swansea Take care, Don
  11. http://dcaptain.com/beaconraylights.html The light is a Federal Signal product. Contact the guy at the link above. He is a good guy who has gone through a lot of effort to research and reproduce parts to restore the light. He also sells restored lights. The light you have posted has an optional piece below the skirt for mounting on a pole. This piece will be the hardest to locate in my opinion but it does show up on eBay. Good of luck with your project. Don
  12. Good luck Paul, I thought you left Long Island to get away from people like this
  13. I seem to recall needing a clip similar to the wire one. I think I went to the local hardware store and found one that was suitable. Good luck with your search. Don
  14. That truck would be perfect for Yocum Creek Fire Dept located in southeast Kentucky. Thier pumpers are all Mack CF’s and MC’s. They believe they have the best fleet around and I agree.
  15. Hello, the cab looks really good. Sorry to hear about the stone chip. I can’t believe how much progress you have made. Kind of makes me feel like I’m moving at a snails pace. Oh well Rome was not built in one day. Take care, Don
  16. I hate to be the one to break the bad news to you but you have no future in the interior design of truck interiors. What you have done there makes way to much sense. Keep up the good work. 👍 🚛. Looks awesome
  17. Looks like your son is having a blast. But who wouldn’t be smiling sitting in the jump seat of a C model fire engine. I hope he continues to enjoy the hobby with you. 🚒👍
  18. After the rain stopped it turned out to be a great day. I really enjoyed seeing my friends and making some new ones.
  19. I've had good a good experience with Belardinelli in Bethel also.
