Spartan Fire Pumper - By Jeff Webster

Here's another custom fire pumper from Jeff Webster. Jeff started with a new Boley Spartan pumper painted in white. The cab and rear body were stripped and repainted. The center section was masked to save the black pump panel and repainted. Up front, a new front suction was added to the bumper, a better sized siren, and a length of hose added. On the cab, the light holes were filled and cut down; vector bars were added to each front corner. The grille received a black wash for depth. Decals are custom made dry transfers and miscellaneous parts of various decal sets. All of the metal trim was done in either matte aluminum or chrome Bare Metal Foil depending on the part. Hard suction was replaced with some off of an IHC pumper. A new set of chrome wheels finishes it off.
