…… I hope Santa’s coach didn’t break down…..hey, I didn’t get a call!
We left the shop on its own, left these 2 where they could talkI’ll let Eleganza out with breakfast a little later. Proving he has more skills than a commercial scuba diver and a pretty fair wrench, he put our front end link sway bar bushings in place of my missing Chuck bushings and Walla… The Co-op rat rod scare board has been born
Just before giving up to watch for Santa, the guys brought the ambulance remount we have underwaythis is a process many less funded EMS services must do to keep enough viable emergency vehicles in service. This is an oldieA 1996 Ford Diesel! Being used until recently? The “sharps” container was full! So the process is, we sand smooth 2 different finishesa’ll the lights come off, all those colors….its going back appliance white with vinyl graphics. So this Military JAN spec aluminum box ( could be dropped out of a C-130….. but then Jason pointed out anything could be DRPPED out on it! Anyway, the clapped out Ford soot shooter will be dismounted and that now freshly painted aluminum EMS utility box will get an all new cab and chassis. Follow this….its a pretty neat process and tens of thousands of dollars in savings for their county EMS budget. I can them “Remount Restorations”. From 1995-7, a great buddy Alan A. and I developed this successful concept that has lasted to today. Alan still does this and being overloaded as most good shops are….we’re slammed too but I offered to pitch in my guys so we’re on that too.
I’ll be right back about this……….
