What holds Center Factory AC vent

Hey guys, what holds in the center factory center AC vent in a 67-68 camaro? I'm trying to add the vent to a non-air car. Is there a clip that clips onto the vent? It doesn't seem to mount like the heater control where it has threads for screws. Also, does the vent mount behind the dash? Like the heater control?

Thanks,
Tony

Re: What holds Center Factory AC vent

The a/c vent screws on, same as the heater control. If you have a non-air, you'll need to cut out an opening so the a/c vent fits. If you are going with Vintage Air their kit should include a template. The center vent louver section is another story. Look at the various Vintage Air installation posts. i.e. the louver section is designed to be held in place by factory a/c center vent shroud (shroud pushes against the louver pins to hold the assembly in place). If you use the Vintage Air shroud you'll need to fabricate or glue something in place to hold the movable louver section to it's housing. Lot's of posts on this

Re: What holds Center Factory AC vent

I am working on installing a Vintage Air system in a non factory AC 68. The instruction from them so far as been great. I had to cut an area in the dash where the vent goes and cut and mount the vent they supplied in the removable center panel. Two screws holds the vent assembly on and a foam pad sticks on the rear to seal the hose assembly. I think it looks great,even it is not the factory vent.
