Jon Higley removing some old decals

Zac Hopkins rubbing out the paint job; returning the bright red color

Both sides of the Fire/Rescue truck had folks taking turns at removing old decals in preparation for some bright new ones.  It’s a tricky, time-consuming process; getting them off without damage to the underlying paint.  The new look will be worth it.
