Well came across my first problem . The low side hose that goes from the compressor to the firewall was  2- 3" to short. Just finished calling them & they are sending a new one out today ...no charge. So far everything is a direct bolt up. Also have to buy a new serpentine  belt as the one they sent is 3.5" short ( I expected that.)

Classic air sent me the correct hose ASAP (3" longer). Everything is in & it works like a new car ...ICE COLD & plenty of air. Much better than the Vintage air I put in the 68, but that was awhile ago. The new radio is great & it plays MP3's too...so one USB stick can hold 16 days of music Cheesy. You can see the LED's on a cloudy day. Boy I'm glad that's done I hate putting the  dash back together. Lips Sealed
