Ok, I caught on a little late to that... I didn't even realize that's the way it worked until I saw that pic from the manual yesterday morning. There's a metal flange from the factory that the center vent just happens to be able bolt right up to 2.25" back from where it's suppose to sit. It threw me for a loop.
I just need to find those clips and I'll be set.

thanks guys...

Re: Vintage air in a non factory A/C 1969 Camaro

Hey Shad,

I'm right in the middle of installing a gen IV VA system in my non-air 68.

I read guys complaining about fitting the #10 suction hose under the dash ; I had no idea what they were complaining about until last night.

I installed the evaporator under the dash and that hose has to make a sharp downward bend into the kick panel opening. Vegas has recommended using a reduced barrier hose and loop it under the dash to relieve the stress from the line.

I think mine's ok; it doesn't seem to be under a whole lot of stress although I wouldn't say it's "stress-free."

This doesn't apply if you are running your hoses out of the area where the heater hoses used to be. Just thought I would mention it.
