In 1997 the rig was sent to EJ Murphy in Woodville, MA for a refurb at a cost of $39, 844. Some of the work that was done was the addition of a pre-piped deck gun, the removal of the booster reel, the addition of an around the pump compressed air foam system with two 25 gallon foam tanks, a new 750 gallon poly water tank, addition of high side compartments to the driver side, new paint (cab was changed to white over red), relocation of the air horns from the roof to the front bumper, and the addition of an air pack compartment to the Officer seat.
When the current owner purchased the rig, the blue paint was removed revealing the current paint job with the Kittery Point lettering in very good condition. The current owner uses the rig in the parade and show circuit.
