I need to install the interior door panels, …and finish installing the sound system, …but aside from those two elements, the interior is done.
The interior pieces came back from upholstery, and all I can say is WOW. I can’t wait to get these installed! The pictures don’t do them justice.
I have completed the installation of the HVAC system. The 2.5″ SHOP-VAC tubing was used to run the air-flow, and a plate (made of fiberglass) was fabricated – this allowed the tubes to mount to the stock HVAC outlet. This was a time consuming modification – 6.5 hours total.
The ducts were secured to the fiberglass dash using something called a Chicago nut/bolt fastener – they are also called barrel nuts/bolts. They have a very low profile, so it won’t interfere with the upholstery or the trim pieces. The couplers I glassed in are being used to connect a 2.5″ hose for the HVAC […]
Not the prettiest application of fiberglass, but it works! A fresh coat of paint always makes it look better.
I’ve decided against the installation the stock HVAC system – it was causing fitment issues with the PISA dash. So I’m going to run a custom venting system using vacuum tubing. More details to follow….
I had some time today to cut out the holes for the dash speakers and the HVAC vents. I used a cardboard template to help transfer the hole locations.
