      Your truck looks great.

      I got a quote of $1200.00 to do the lettering on my van from FASTSIGNS.

      I went to a local sign company who charged me $565.00 for the same thing.

      National franchises will get ya, kind of like "you know who rooter"

      I should have gotten my logo done before I did my van lettering though.

        Nice truck, a buddy of mine plumbs out of one, It has got to be the best truck to work out of I've ever seen.

            Robert,
            way to go. I bet the inside is immaculate. I got a feeling you are going to end up with several trucks on the road with uniformed plumbers, turned out by you, raking in the dough.

              The wrap is good, the only thing is it would have cost me around $6000 to redo both vans to make them look alike. I would rather save that for cash flow or towards a trailer jetter.

                I must say, it is easier to keep this truck clean inside, but extremely hard to keep it clean outside, it really sucks to wash it!!

                  Robert, best of luck with the new vehicle and business. I have a couple of suggestion I hope you will consider. Try and keep the locking bar that runs through the doors free of obstruction and lightly greased. Lastly, I would imagine you will be using a lock either keyed, or combination (sesamee, sp) to secure the lock bar? Consider a small chain secured to the bar and other end to the lock to prevent losing the lock in the event it is left open while the vehicle is moving. You might want to keep the door hinge pins well lubed if they are still that design. I'm going from past experience with similar truck and door designs. Good luck. Frank

                        Thanks Frank, the slide bar has an internal lock, no other exterior locks needed. I do understand about slide bar and things getting in the way

                          I sat on the decision for a long time, it was a tough decision, but I grew out of my old van, I was always running tot he garage to get equipment and it was slowing me down, this way, everything is ready and i can upsell a jetter or camera alot easier, not even upsell, if I need it just because the situation calls for it, it is right there.

                          If the company needs to grow, I don't have a choice, I have to help it, I can't hold it back

                          Now is the time to purchase, this is a late year o7, it sat for a long time, long story short, the dealer put a body on it and sold it for what the actuall van costs, I got the body for free.

                          Good luck with your move over here! exciting!

                            That's is a nice new work vehicle. I have one very similar to it. You will be happy not having to run for parts after every job.

                            Your signs are excellent also.
