Air Conditioning

Anyone know of good under dash aircon units for XW/ZC cars??

XF under dash unit looks good but is too big to squeeze under the dash I think...

Re: Air Conditioning

There's a kid in Vic with a dealer fitted AC unit in his XA coupe. It's a (not so) pretty meaty unit, but at least it's from the same era.

Take a look here if you're interested...

Thanks for that - seen any other setups?

Re: Air Conditioning

Ha hah, there's no substitute for taste.

Travis certainly needs the money as he's currently doing up his Coupe.

I've seen another set up from an XB which maybe factory, it sits under the dash again but follows the line of the XB's dash, cockpit style surrounding the driver. Guess passengers come second best again!

I'd love to put in a nice neat overhead unit for the back seat passengers...

it would need to be really slim where it runs up the pillar(s) - could use the stock interior light mounting to screw it to in the middle - maybe a Mad Max style centre roof console too...

Re: Air Conditioning

Sounds like one funky project you have there.

By the way what's the deal with the perforated headrests? Are the speakers wire up in there? Or am I totally going off the handle!?!!

It has been my main mode of transport since about 1990- this is it's 5th engine and the Magpie outfit is it's third paint job.

The 302C with Torker and 450 Mec/Sec Spreadbore Single Pump Holley was the most impressive for speed - changing into 4th gear when the speedo had been wound off the clock at 120mph sometime in 3rd gear was pretty impressive - man did it chew some fuel doing that!
For a 350km trip, if you didn't get fuel at 200km, you were running on vapours at 350 with a 75 litre tank - like 21 l/100km.

Those are Recaro/Blaupunkt Auto Stereo Seats - the stereo effect is great!
One has to go back to the Upholstrer for the 3rd time to get the outside bolster redone - they keep wearing out...

Question Re: Air Conditioning

Hey Tuff,

Did you manage to get in contact with Travis, the guy with the old dealership AC from his XA? If not I'll see if I can get hold of him elsewhere, he used to hang around the GT message boards a fair bit too.
