They bring a smile to the hearts of children everywhere. They capture your awe and command your respect. In a parade or behind you on the road, emergency vehicles have the capacity to both thrill and terrify.
These trucks take a kind of punishment no other vehicle on the road has to endure. Not only are they driven hard and placed in on the front line of raging infernos; they are washed and detailed daily, sometimes twice.
That level of meticulousness wreaks havoc on a paint job. The scrubbing, the detergents and the constant flow of water can dull a paint job long before it's time.
