"Raising Engine 11" Update
Pictured above are Team Clinicians Chris Wells, Amanda Custer and Jim Zukauskas working on Engine 11.
Work is progressing on Engine 11. We have it stripped of most of the parts, handrails, treadplate, handles, etc. that will need to be replated. We are reconfiguring the hose bed to make a seating area for people to ride during parades and will be putting the seats and headliner in the shop this week to be recovered. We are doing some sandblasting on the running boards and compartments this coming week in preparation for sending it to the body shop. It is turning out out be quite a project but one that will be very rewarding in the end. We could still use some donations to help offset the expenses if anyone would like to make a contribution. Thanks to all of you that have contributed your time and money so far.
