I recently took an order from a very good customer for a mid mount aerial.
He asked for a commercial cab, pump, outriggers, 2-3 cabinets on the side, and internal ladder storage.
I generally do not build mid mounts, but wanted to try, since he is a good customer.
this is what i came up with and would appreciate any thoughts

Thanks
Tom D

I have to say its different.
Really unique rig.
But I like it.

Maybe make the pump panel red too to give it a bit more nostalic look to it.

Nice to see you trying something different for a good customer.
