After many days of inactivity due to work, trips and a sick baby ... I´m back doing some technic . I got many parts from BL so I was able to work on the back of the truck: I needed to built some shelves to store all the rigs and firefighting equipment, and here the result.
I uploaded quite a few new picks on Brickself.
Also, I was to simulate, the folded fire hoses by using 1x7 Lift arms but i need quite large number of them. Any suggestions on other lego part that may do the job better?.

I´ll try :-) I was going to use lift arms to imitate folded fire hoses for the back of the truck as shown on the picture, but I have to use too many of them, so I was looking for an alternative lego parts that will look like fire hoses.

I think that stack of 1x7 Technic Liftarms looks fine to simulate a folded fire hose. However, one could use 4081b "Plate, Modified 1 x 1 with Clip Light - Type 2 (thick ring)" parts on the ends of 3666 1x6 Plates or 6636 1x6 Tiles sandwiched in between them:

that´s an idea, I need to check if they have this part at my local lego store.
thx, I need to check this route also!
Very ingenous Sr, too bad is not Lego, or lego does have shoe laces thx!
Pneumatic hose will match the standard 1 inch booster hose usually carried on a reel on the fire pumper, rather than being stored flat.
The 5 inch relay hose is the one normally carried folded in the pumper.
To use a PF for the reel is a good idea, but I need to take out and rebuild many parts !
Will see, thx
