They had a tech bulletin about installing it backwards.

AC freon

Hey check this out. www.duracool.com

It is fully compatable with 12 or 134, and cools better than either.
MMMUCH better than 134.

You can see all my notes Here

I trashed the plastic plenum ... it fit nicely under the dash; custom fit but I like the looks of '55 Chevy knobs installed in the bottom of my dash better and when I finish my interior panels, I'll route the ducts wherever I want them.

2 Summers with the AC; 1 Winter with the heater and I'm very pleased.

Great write up on your site, Alan! What I can't see in your pics...is what you used for vents when you removed your plenum box

Now getting back to the thread's theme, I'm still a way off from needing an A/C. I DO appreciate everyone's input on this one. Other than Vintage Air, I wasn't sure who else was out there.
It's interesting that Hot Rod Air is in Selma, TX. That's just right down the road from San Antonio (Vintage). Is it previous employees from Vintage or vise versa?

As I mentioned above, "when I finish my interior panels, I'll route the ducts wherever I want them." Right now, I just have the ducts positioned under the dash, pointing where they serve best. I'll be making floor panels where I'll then route the ducts and put round vents into the panels to direct the AC/Heat ... you know?

HotRod Air sells the vents -- you can see them Here

DOH!
I must be tired from working on the panel today. My reading skills seem to be degrading...
Thanks
