This is where I'll continue from Red Dog. If you haven't read Red Dog, you can do it, then when I continue here it will not take so long to down load.

Update- 8/3/10

I just got back working on the Mack.  I thought I just had to finish painting the inside and a little wiring..WRONG. After getting the dash out and the switch panel, also the glove box, the wires are a total mess. Some one told me awhile back to rip it all out, and thats what it going to take.

The switch / circuit braker panel didn't look to bad at first, but when they redid that, they only went 6" or 1' and spliced in to the mess!!!

I'm puting in new gages, switches, circuit breakers,and new wires.

I have the dash almost stripped.Pulled all the floor mats and old insulation out. I have the old heater out. Its to be replaced with a new heater/AC combo...

I'm working on it full time now, retired time= 4hr per day.. UPS delevering parts every other day, the off day I have to go to town to pick up stuff.

I'll post some pics, as I go along...

Update 8/6/10

I had a lot of fun pullig the wires out of the cab. I was nice to just pull and snip, not having to remember where it went or what it was for.All the wiring inside is gone, except a few coming down th inside of the winschield posts. I left them so I could use them to pull new ones with out having to fish...

Dash is cleaned and painted. Guage and switch panels are cleaned and painted. Seat pulled.. I did put a scratch in the door getting it out. I'll fix it when i'm repainting the redd on the other door--overspray!!

Floor cleaned,prime, 1 coat-  almost ready for hush mat and insulation.

When I get most of  the cab ready to put togather, I'll strip the wires from inside the frame and go with all new.

I hope to be ready to reasemble and rewire by mon, if the weather stays good. I have to be done by the first...... or first snow!  lol..

Update...

I finished the hushmat, and finished the insalation. I even did the front and under the dash(firewall?). I started on the mockup of the a/c heater. I wanted to drill the holes for the bulkhead fittings, before installing the floor mats. I got black ribbed rubber mat from Home Depot ( viynel).

When putting A/C in a cab over, you have to make allowence for tilting.. no kinking or pulling..

I think i'm ready to put the mat in tommorow.

I spent a lot of time on the phone working out details on how to connect things.  Each circuit is simple but then they interconnect they have to work togather. ie; the cruise control has to work with the brakes (stop lights) and the exhaust brake.. also with the clutch. It has to kick off.

I had to work out how to get the a/c to work with fan switch, and a manuel switch too. Fan control was set up to work with one or the other, but not both.Have that worked out, then I couldn't find the mark on the dryer, as to what side was in and out. Painted over at the factory.

I had to order 90 deg fittings for the heater /AC. It was made to run the hoses straight foward, can't do that in a COE!! Have to go 90 right, then 90 down through the floor..

These things are not hard, just tedious.. Have to think 2 steps ahead so you don't paint yourself in to a corner,  lol

Love the tech lines the mfg have. You have to go through 1 or 2 layers to get to the guy who knows something besides the stock answer. It goes pretty quick when you say "its for a 57 mack" .

More later, pictures next time.............
