It looks close, really close. Keep pushing through and looking forward to the first long cruise!

Tinkered with it some more. As ya'll know, I am going with the CANbus wiring system. Well there is a rear chassis relay module that needs to be hidden.

So here is my resulting execution... well thus far.

So this...



Will be replaced with this...





The box isn't finished yet (needs rivets of course) and some corner guards are on order from Restoration Hardware.

Thanks guys!

So finally got some time to work on this truck again. Creeping along. 50 minutes of planning for every 10 minutes of work.

Yes, that is a flip cap Dust resistant USB port on the back of the box. It was the most retro modern way I could think of to hide a USB port in the box cover so that something could be charged in the back seat and also can be used to adjust different features in the CANbus system. The box cover opens but all of the wiring will be covering that access panel so this is just as easy. The corner guards are just little Jewelry box corners from Restoration Hardware. So yea, Restoration Hardware, Bed, Bath, and Beyond.. now all I need is some Yankee Candle and maybe William Sonoma and this truck will be the true definition of a "Mall Crawler".

So my Cummins ECM doesn't have the fan temp control system, even though the build sheet says it does... weird. So, that means I am installing a stand alone controller. Went with the Dakota Digital that I can program my on/off points using the temp gauge sender as a source. Pretty slick little unit; however it has zero weather resistance and I didn't want to stand on my head to make the adjustments so I went ahead and bent up a glove box and installed the control unit there.
