Re: Kick panel air vents
You could leave the kick panel vents and close them as you suggest. Does the vintage air unit provide for outside air to enter the cabin unless "max" A/C is selected? The first generation A/C cars had what appeared to be a passenger side kick panel vent, but it did not vent to the outside. It was a valve utilized to circulate "max" A/C, or worked in conjunction with a fresh air intake valve which was located under the cowl (near the right windshield wiper).
