Hot Rod Air Conditioning


Anyone happen to know of an Air Conditioning shop that would cater to hot rods in the Surrey, BC Canada area?

I am putting my A/C back together in my 39 Chev 2 door and will need a bit of help with crimping a hose and a few other adjustments.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Had that problem many, many years ago and found that any place that makes hydraulic hoses or repairs them can make the AC hose for you as well as any power steering hoses. Great place to keep in miind when you can't get that certain size hose, etc.... Hope this helps you,

There was a shop on 95A Ave, just off Scott road that did the hydraulic hose crimps stuff for my power steering when I was putting my '57 Chev together with the custom-built "605" series box.

Princess Auto does hydraulic hose crimping (I used P.A. to make the custom hoses when i built my log splitter)
