  1. I don't use a booster as the vacuum is not sufficient to manage same. Made a plate out of aluminum to cover the mounting holes
  2. Nickjames, not because of the vintage air evaporator, it was the Digital Dakota gauge module that was attached to the front of the evaporator. Mounting it there allows easy access but prevents the actual glove box liner to be attached.
  3. Vic - I used two of the the vintage air bulk heads ( http://www.vintageair.com/hose-kits-fittings/?subcat1=Bulkhead Plates&subcat2=2-Way ), one for the firewall/wheel well and the other for the wheel well/engine compartment. I purchased the hose crimper from Amazon ( https://www.amazon.com/Mastercool-71550-Black-Manual-Crimper/dp/B000WBQ4U2/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=mastercool+crimp&qid=1566866011&s=automotive&sr=1-1 ). Left the heat in the firewall as the lines run across the intake anyway.
  4. Pics of modified vintage air setup, went through wheel well, GM peanut compressor on pass side.
  5. Copy that, weigh the pros and cons, center console wins!!
  6. Vic, did you check the glove box fitment with the VHX module? Was going to mimick your set up but won't work with glove box, no clearance.
  7. Working that now, failed to see you had the BIM. I am working with a new Painless Harness, Holley Sniper w/Dual sync distributor, Digital Dakota VHX, and Performance Automatic controller for 4R70W. Plus battery relocate to trunk along with solenoid (similar to Vic's conv), and Vintage Air. Lots of WIRES!!!! This is last part then back to the the body shop panel/door installs, glass, and exhaust.
  8. Vic, for the Vintage Air, which wire did you use from the harness for the 12V ignition source? Assume one of the AC wires would work from the harness as I have plenty available (new painless harness).
  9. Use a flat head jewelers screwdriver, slip it in the opposite side (180) of the split opening of the connector. Looking down, you'll see the spit I'm referring to. Once it is slide in (between the plastic side wall and connector pin), angle it out so the tip will push the retaining tab in. All that is holding the pin is a small tab that is bent out to prevent the pin from being pulled. Once you successful do this you'll need to pry the tab back out prior to reinserting it.
  10. Ready do to same, you connected it how?? Also, I replaced the switch but found the bezel piece that screws into the switch from the face does not work, had to go back to original switch. Did you run into same? The bezal piece would only grab the last thread, tried two new ones, maybe the switch has a bad thread?
  11. http://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=1105/category_id=646/mode=prod/prd1105.htm
  12. I got the same setup, Dakota digital has a harness that connects to the snipper, done. Unsure the part number as I'm on the road however you can search Google for same. Bought mine through either Jegs or Summit
  13. Found one at a local mustang graveyard
  14. Thank you, this is much appreciated. Way more detailed than the shop manual
  15. Putting together the lower dash and I only have the upper "horse collar" bracket. Believe there are a couple more brackets? And I can only find the upper bolt mount on each side, believe there should be attachment points on the bottom sides as well. Manuals are worthless as they only discuss dash pad. Any helpful info, pics would be appreciated.
  16. Anyone know where one can find a re manufactured plastic cover for the wiper motor? I have a crack in mine and would like to use a new one if possible.
  17. Fiberglass bumper from MTF, but I did have to modify it for a tight fit
  18. Got her home from paint, time to reassemble for good.
  19. As an FYI - I sent my wood grain 69 interior inserts (door panel, radio bezel, instrument cluster) to a hydrographics shop that sprayed the body color, applied a carbon fiber hydrographic followed by a clear. Will post pics once the items are received.
  20. I installed an IDIDIT tilt column, moved my seat pans back 6" and installed MTF seats (2" lower than competitor seats). I am 6'7" and now fit. Additionally, the inner qtr panel interior pieces was sectioned by 2 inches and wrapped in leather to allow the seat to recline further (can recline all the way though it is not needed). The back seat is eliminated with a custom fold down that stays down at all times. When your 6'7" people can't sit behind you regardless of the car
