I'll have to lift the front, as it is just too low - even though the stance upfront unloaded is perfect

After much consideration, I decided to bite the bullet and have a go at installing a Vintage Air Gen IV Air Conditioner kit.

Before

https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-PJdsDPq/0/29c04915/L/20170513_111825_zpsuecueves-L.jpg

After - Installed AC hoses & Switches added along with Vintage Air dash vents.

https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-nBHgMwX/0/cb4d619e/L/20180318_142152-L.jpg

https://photos.smugmug.com/My-First-Gallery/i-Mtrn9PX/0/0ac8aa8f/L/20180318_142140-L.jpg

Final AC lines installed, gassed and tested. Runs ice cold. Very happy.

Sensational job.

Seems to fit well without major dash alterations.

Which particular Vintage Air model did you use?

Cheers,

Scott

Thanks Scott. I used a Gen IV system. I had read that it was a tight fit, but it seemed to fit nicely - just had to be mindful of where and how to route the hoses etc which all worked out in the end .

Cheers,
Trevor:)

New Door Cards


New Door Cards arrived - All up 9 pieces, each with chrome strips and I chose the deep black vinyl. Thanks to Newton Commercial in the U.K.

A long way to go yet before they can be installed :(

A small but rather major update. Goodbye to the two-tone Bus (with test panels of various shades of white) and hello to 'bright white'.
