I'm thinking of installing air in my 69 z/28
It has the DZ motor in it. Has anyone done this? Do I have to remove the fender to get to the Fan motor or do I even have to change it? Any input would be helpful.

Yes, yes and yes.

The Vintage air unit uses it's own under the dash heater/coil unit. The hard part is getting to the motor nuts to get the old unit off the firewall. You may be able to cut a hole in the inner fender to align with the nut that you have to get will find out easily what that one is.

If you decide to take the fender off, take the whole unit off as one piece, inner fender and all......that's the easiest and least likely way of scratching paint up!

I recently purchased a vintage air system, but I have yet to install it. If you have not yet purchased it, check with Cassic Industries as they are having a 20% off sale. You may need the code no. for this. I bought mine during their spring 20% off sale and it cost just over $800. Vintage Air does recommend removal of the fender. GM recommends unbolting the bottom of the fender and propping it out with a piece of 4X4 lumber to access the fan.
