Re: Aftermarket AC & heat
Wayne, I did a lot of research before selecting Classic Auto Air "Perfect Fit" a/c for my '68 Camaro. PO removed the factory condenser, compressor, etc. The firewall housing was severely damaged. I installed the CAA "Perfect Fit" myself about 3 yrs ago, with no prior a/c experience. Had to read the instructions a few times. Cost was: Perfect Fit A/C $1200, attaching fitting to one hose $15, evacuate and charged a/c sys $108. Total $1323.00. Was able to use original dash controls for a/c and heater. Ran the requested longer hoses behind fender apron. Go to my User CP to see photo. Dynamatted the firewall & floor, and tinted the rear window 80% to get the interior temp down more.
Both optimists and pessimists contribute to society. The optimist invents the automobile, the pessimist seat belts, head rests, disc brakes, and air bags.
