I told myself I wasn’t posting the weekend, oops, forgot don’t plunking on the phone…. What a pain but with the grass at least at bay, 3 miles from the shop figured I’d give it a try.
The turn in Ruby’s dash is along with wiring the MacDaddy dash harnesses, there are other circuits we will also need to prepare. Being common ground the original speaker wires will not be used… Also in that we’re changing out the terrible type 1 dash AC used in the first 2 years of production, it will be completely replaced. All new circuits and systems will be installed “home run” so future maintenance and troubleshooting will be easier The target of this project is to make the coach up to today’s options while blending the classic look. Sounds cute…. Ruby will be cute but will be packed to the gills with today’s technology..
- It’s so difficult to do throw pics up in verbiage so the next pics are removing the original heat/cool unit and venting. Any wiring not to be reused are insulated and tucked safe. Interestind they put an aluminum block off plate on the firewall. Guess the precut hole for the unit was off….. Prototype… not much wiring left! The return vent on the left had no baffle connected! Probably left it in recirc all the time to help the system….. Didn’t work! The new system will occupy the same space, electric servo controlled with I think a digital readout….. Stay tuned
We harvested a production rear cap to replace the badly deteriorated custom pallets… But I’ll save them! I MAY see about reusing the original front cap…. Its really not bad…. We’ll see.Guess I probably SHOULD enjoy my weekend…. I will! This is part of it… I feel better now….. See ya later…
