Have a dilemma and would like some help or suggestions-please! Picked up a Trumpeter Amer LaFrance Eagle Pumper from Hobby Lobby for $7. Yes, you read that correctly, $7. It was marked way down due to a close business relationship I have with the manager. (Plus my daughter works there ) It is missing the photo-etch, some chrome (mainly wheels), and tires. Although, some goober that bought it and then returned it, hence the clearance, swapped in Revell snap tires. There's the skinny, now the dilemma.
1) I have a ROG Canadian Hauler that has the chrome 10 hole and the painted 2 hole Budds. List a wanted for the 6 required tires and get to building?
2)Place the boxes and pump on a different frame/cab for a totally different look?
3) Use the boxes only with a section of spare tank I have and make a service truck?
4) Or trade it off to someone that would be interested in tackling such a project?
Just curious on what you all might think.
