Default Need odd parts, Parts to give away, Trans Retarder, Trans Temp, Air Press. Problems

I have just finished a complete paint job on my 1989 PT40. As a result I have some extra parts and need some new ones.
We painted the complete roof with silver truck bed liner including the air conditioner covers and mobile satellite antennae. The cover for the 12v forward cab air unit is beyond repair. Where can I find a replacement?
The 23 ft awning was replaced as well. It is still available from ZIPDee in Chicago for about $2000.
I replaced all signal and marker lighting with new LED units. The old square Hella lighting fixtures on the back ( 4 on each side ) are still in good shape. If anyone needs one or all, they are free for the asking.
I replaced the entire sound system with a new double DIN Pioneer combination AM/FM/DVD/SAT radio and backup camera unit. With an adapter plate it fits nicely where the old backup monitor was located. Likewise all the old Wandersound components and camera are available for the asking.
I replaced the exhaust system with another 15" x 36" stock muffler ( still available from United muffler in Canada for just $325). I left the old exhaust on the Alaska highway right outside of Whitehorse. We also lost two aluminum wheels from the same alaskan highway. For those of you who still have the original aluminum 22.5" wheels, it is a good idea to check them for cracks. It has been my experience on over the road trucks/buses that 20-25 years is about all you are going to get out of al wheels before they will stress crack. It already had two new wheels when I bought the coach 10 months ago.
I have lost several of the Dzus quarter turn quick connect fasteners that retain the front electrical control panel. Where can one find replacements?
I need some advice on troubleschooting the tranny retarder. It works when I turn it on. However, two issues arise instantly. The allison oil temp climbs over 100 degrees in about 20 seconds and will peg the gauge it I let it. At the same time the chassis brake air pressure drops from 120 psi to less than 80 psi in the same amount time.

Neils,

You have so many topics in your thread here that I can't figure out where to put it. Normally we ask that you separate the topics into separate threads so that the same topic is discussed in each thread, but this one will be all over the place, but I'm going to move this to the Wanderlodge Owners Group > Mechanic's Corner > General and hope that all of your questions and offers get replies.

Niels, if your condenser is also shot, a new Red Dot, (Thermo King) is available on Ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33547

The unit appears to be new but the ID tag reads 4-2006.

Would love to see some before and after pictures on your paint job, thinking of doing mine the first part of next year.

I can see that I should raise my prices on our mufflers
you can get the fasteners from aircraft spruce

On the retarder.
Its operated by air.
On the top rear of the tranny theres an air cylinder that actuates the retarder,i suspect this cylinder is leaking,causing air pressure to drop.
