More parts ordered- Vintage Air 70654-VUQ offset water necks, plug wires, radiator hoses, wiper blades, Newport Wipers motor, rear seat belts to strap the kids chairs in. Will start the rewire/12v conversion shortly, been too distracted to dig in. Anxiously awaiting the new radiator (US Radiator via shoebox-central). It should arrive just after the 12v/rewire project is finished, then it's time for AC. I'm figuring out the vintage air components now, should make the car quite drivable in this AZ heat. I have been browsing threads here for pics of under-dash ac louvers, have seen a few. I suppose it'll be time to test my metalworking chops and see how much I've forgotten. Matching the compound curve around the 50 dash will be tricky, the way it comes down around the radio. I think I can do it... might need to re-buy some tools though. Pics or build thread links of suggestions for the louvers are more than welcome! I hoped to make the cruise-in night this past Friday at shop a few miles away... I wanted to see what kind of work they do, life got in the way. Maybe I can make it this Fri. It's still too hot here to load the kids into the car without AC, they'd never put up with the wind in their faces for that long. Irony is that by the time I get the AC installed, it'll be nice weather here. At least it'll be ready for next year lol. The Goodguys show is coming up here, can't wait to drive down into the show... sure beats walking from the lot. It's been too long.
