It was a small group tonight, but we took some time to wipe down the firetruck and assess what all needs to be repaired and what materials we are going to need.
-All of the painted parts had bubbles in the paint.
-The passenger side rear panel is in decent shape and might take an hour to repair and prep for paint.
-The driver side is probably half a day of work ahead to repair the lose taillight and crumpled up corner before it can be prepped for paint.
-The front isn’t in bad shape either, but we will need to come up with a more robust way to attach the front bumper (probably do like a composite aircraft panel - hollow out holes in both parts, fill holes with epoxy, and then bolt back together), so that might take a solid day or two to repair and prep for paint.
We still need the dimensions of the new wheel chair before we really decide how to progress.
We are also in need a few materials to get to rolling on the repairs:
- Foam Safe Epoxy
- Red Latex Paint
- Black Latex Paint
- White piping material or a way to re attach the piping around the window of the fire truck
- Replacement decals (I heard someone was working on a new set of these)
We looked around MakeICT for the materials but did not see any of them here. Would anyone be able to help us come up with those materials?
Any and all help (I know I feel like a broken record) is really really super duper ice cream sandwich worthy appreciated.
