  • Lettering a KW door

    We're working on the lettering for our new pumper tanker (Kenworth chassis). Problem we're having is the window in the bottom of the passenger door. Anyone have any pictures or anything of one they've had done or someone close to them that we can get some ideas on? We want something that's going to look nice, not tacky, but it's a pain due to that freaking window.

    Some here

    This is off the pierce website, there are a bunch of examples. Most of the chassis are the smaller model but there a few of the large ones. Does the window design help with seing curbs and what not?

      A window in that location's not uncommon on bigger commercial trucks. It allows the driver to see if there's a vehicle in his blindspot forward of what the spot mirror shows. It just happens that KW makes it standard, even on fire chassis, which for some reason I doubt they make a specific "fire" chassis. I imagine they just use the same chassis as for commercial use and make the dimensions how the manufacturer orders them.

      I'm having a little bit of difficulty with that site, any tricks to getting the pictures to download? Or even any specific rigs that are KW? (assuming the nateboyce.com is the site and not part of a signature?)

          we just had to do it on our new tanker, we needed up using an decal of our patch on the doors so the window didn't interfere and did writing on the hood and tank. At work on our dump trucks we have a downsized decal of whats on the passenger door and it fits, its annoying that its not an option like it used to be.

            That's not very comforting, we're looking at redesigning our patch but holding off to see if our fire district passes. Hate to design a patch that says "Fire Department" and have to change it to "Fire Protection District."

                Exactly! I've already been trying to figure that one out.

                  Thats why we dropped the "Protection" off of our last two new trucks.
