Vintage Air Kick Panel Modification
For those of you that have routed the AC and heater hoses through the kick panel...
I've got the AC unit mocked up under the dash with all the hoses run and the kick panel filler plate installed (the one with 4 holes and grommets) but I don't have the kick panel in. When I do it for real, the hoses will all go through the kick panel. It was hard enough to wrestle the hoses and AC box into place without having the kick panel in the way. That seems like it would make it an even bigger PITA.
I've already modified the kick panel to cut out the fresh air door tube. I was thinking of making a slice in the kick panel at the top of the hole so that I can just slip the kick panel on once everything is hooked up and done. And then this would also allow me to remove the kick panel in the future if I had to mess with the speaker or wiring behind it.
Anybody else do this? Seems like a reasonable shortcut.
