Any one know where to get better knobs for the Vintage air unit. the black ones that come with it look cheap. I'm looking for anything else, maybe something bullet Al.

I found these at Lowes in the hardware boxes. They are bakelite material - cost maybe $2.35 each. They had a brass threaded hole in the back. I just drilled it out and there was enough 'meat' to solidly grip the 'D' shaped insert thingy I took off the V/A knobs.
I got some knobs from Billet Specialties (an advertiser in Street Rodder magazine). I originally bought them for another project, but since I had them, I decided to use them to replace those cheesy plastic ones.

Whan I did up the knobs for my dash I changed my mind mid-stream and went with a bit of a different design. But I had made a few of the original design and your more than welcome to them if you want. They are 1" diameter and 1/2" deep with a 3/16" shaft hole (I can make the hole bigger but not smaller if you want). They are held on the shaft with an allen head set screw on one side. Here's a pic but the ones I would send do not have the indicator hole drilled (i.e. plain face) so they would look like the one on the right. Will send you a couple for the price of shipping (<$5 for reg mail = 2-3 weeks).
Mouser black anodized knobs all hidden inside shallow glovebox. Controls mounted between the squirel cage fans. Master heat/ac off switch located by the steering wheel turns unit off quickly (you know why) without accessing the glovebox controls.
