  1. Bought me a Mack

    Nice truck Welcome aboard
  2. I think that would be a great experience . Unfortunately, Even if I could save the money for it . I don't think I could do the long flights.
  3. Thanks Paul, for the info and the narrated tour of your countryside. I enjoyed your videos so much , I think you would do a good job of some Australian country side videos. I can see it now…….. "The adventures of Paul and Miss Molly" Thanks again , Safe travels
  4. Thanks for sharing your pics with us Paul. I'm pretty sure I will never see the land down under. But your pics get me a little closer. Forgive me if this has been asked already…….. but do you have to keep a log book ? I'm thinking if I got stopped by the DOT in a day cab, If I told them I slept in the gutter beside the truck .Even if the weather was appropriate , They would just haul me off to jail. LOL
  5. The only thing I can add to this thread is 2 working RD's . A 31 year old dump and a 32 year old plow . They are both as reliable as the day they came from Mack I would say the brochure is right . They are tough, durable and do a good job of keeping operating and maintenance cost down.
  6. Haz BMT bin hacked

    There gone ! Thanks !
  7. Haz BMT bin hacked

    I still have it too Jim. When I hit the home button. It goes to corrupt zone . I googled it ………………….. Its a forum of some type??????? Whats this world coming to ?
  8. Mine has an external speaker Vlad . I would never be able to hear it without .
  9. So after some investigation Vlad, I found the CB is mounted with 2 screws mounted to the front. Screwed into some home made brackets. The CB is actually resting on some foam so there isn't much stress on the front. I attached some pics to help. As for the amount of room . It fits no problem. You could even set it in a little farther if you want . Just a little though. Remember you need room for antenna and power wires . Please keep us posted on your progress
  10. Vlad, the previous owner put the CB above the passenger seat. I had always figured it was turned a bit for a little easier access. It could be possible though, it is because of room. I never thought of that . I have never had it out , so I can't answer you properly. I will try to do some investigating for you on the weekend.
  11. Great videos . Thanks Paul. I was thinking , even if you posted your wiper problem , I would have never thought to ask if you were using control properly. I think I would have suggested a new control first , before you changed wiper motor.The wiper motor in the plow is 32 years old and is used every time time truck is out plowing . Had to replace control though.
  12. Vlad, my favourite spot is on the dash by the ash tray. Its easy to mount and easy to use there. My 1988 R has it mounted in the overhead console. It looks really good and is tidy. But its not as handy to access controls though. But it is certainly manageable. My off breed truck has it overhead as well. in the centre. the mic cord hangs down in front of me . but it doesn't bother me at all. its nice and handy. I have added pics for you. Maybe it helps a little .
  13. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this with us. I enjoy your episodes way more than anything on TV.
  14. Like Button?

    At the very bottom of the screen there is a spot that says "Theme" . I had mine set to Carbon. (Like button wasn't there) When I changed it to Flux (default) or just Default , the little Bulldog is there for a LIKE button. I kinda like it because you have the choice of 5 different reactions.
  15. Like Button?

    Its not just you Back in Black. I seem to have lost it too .
