I remember seeing someone who took the vintage heat/def unit and made the box which contains the heater core larger using fiberglass, adding extra outlets to direct air towards the driver/passenger footboxes, instead of the useless "direct dump" that is currently configured. If you have done any changes to the vintage unit, post your ideas or pics here please. And if anyone knows who did the mods i'm talking about, I'd appreciate that info also..

Thanks -
Tim

Tim, I put a stop on the flap door so it wouldn't open but about 1/2". Put a tee in one of the defrost hoses and direct it to the drivers lap. Other hoses to the defrost. Standard FFR mounting, plenty of heat!
Good luck.

I modified the heater to draw air from the passenger footbox and and made a cover for the assembly under the hood.
