VA center dash AC vent

What did you guys do for the Vintage Air center dash vents on a 69 Camaro ?? I was thinking about using the original 2 hole (repro) dash vent and chucking the 4 hole VA center dash vent. The car did not have AC originally, however I will be using an AC dash pad. I just couldn't see cutting up a non AC dash pad and have a clean install.

Re: VA center dash AC vent

I use the repop factory vent and CHQ factory AC dash pad. Looks so much better than the VA vent and cut up dash pad.

Thanks Don, that's what I figured. You have to modify the back of vent to accept the VA hose ?

VA has an adaptor that comes with their kit for factory air cars. You should be able to buy one.
