AIRBRUSHED Maltese Cross on the Tiller Truck
The Freeport Fire Department, thanks to Randy Hassel, was the very first fire department to utilize GARY,"THE LOCAL BRUSH" as an ARTIST to AIRBRUSH their Maltese Cross on their new Tiller Truck. They said that "They wanted something different, rather than the standard gold leaf." They were so happy with the AIRBRUSH effect, that they immediately had Gary AIRBRUSH the sign panels on the Tiller as well.

VINYL LETTERING IS AVAILABLE
The AIRBRUSHED Maltese Cross from the Tiller above, was computerized (not photographed) by GARY & then he printed it in VINYL. The prints are protected with 3M UV protective clear VINYL. Afterwards Gary installed the VINYL prints. They almost look like they are airbrushed, almost! Four inch decals were also printed for the fire house. Hi-Performance Vinyl was used for the lettering on the sides.
