Here You go Dave.
Holes for vents where just laid out, by how I thought they would look the best. When we get it all mounted to the dash, I'll show that operation also.

Bent up a new heat shield for the dual master cylinder assy,
Here's a few shots from old to new.
Not shown is the anti rattle rubber button on bottom of master cylinder, I'll post a picture of that when we do the final polish of the shield.

The perfect air condensation tube would just drip on the engine bay and the clear drip tube would allow daylight to be seen when sitting in the seats, so we changed it to this setup.

Cool

Charles very nice work and I am sure that the air conditioner will work better than when it came off the production line

Does anyone know the correct route for the heater blower motor wires back to heat box ????
What we have done here is add the heater hoses and new heater valve and A/C lines, every thing else is just test fitting.
Gutted the blower fan and inner armature on the motor, that stuff is just a shell now and made up a dummy wiring harness.
We also threw the Perfect Air plenum away and reworked the Ford original.
The reason I'm asking about the wiring route is I've seen about 30 pictures of the wiring and no two are a like.
Also installed condenser.
Thanks Charley
PS--- a picture would sure help.

Simple brake light relocation switch, to get rid of that non-working hard to use pressure brake light switch.
One small bracket and one small hole drilled in column support, then un wind wires from harness at pressure switch and plug in instant brake lights.
Works 6 volt or 12 volt.
Switch $19.84 from O'Reilly fits 1964 66 Chevy/GMC G-10 series Van.

Starting to build the fan shroud for the A/C condenser, moved brackets to right side of shroud and building a new brace on left side to stretch across condenser, all braces will be rubber mounted. 1990 Toyota 4 Runner A/C fan assy.
Will get it cleaned up and installed soon, it will be a one wire setup with the relay installed in dash.
Just having a little fun on the project.


Blue 85 goes to new blower switch.
