Spartan Fire Pumper - By Jeff Webster

First shown in Photo Gallery 69, here's the "business end" of Jeff Webster's customized Boley Spartan. Starting with a white engine, Jeff stripped and repainted the cab and rear body. 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 added. The grille received a black wash for depth. Decals are custom made dry transfers and miscellaneous parts. 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 from an IHC pumper. A new set of chrome wheels finishes it off.
