Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

I'm ready for a complete assembly once you have them. Are you planning to make any sort on plenum with a duct connection for the back side? I would want one as my application is custom, not using the factory AC system.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

i had no intention of selling the vents raw (not chromed) but if for some reason you wanted them i can sell them at $25 each. or you can wait a couple months for the chromed ones at $50 each.

some seller on ebay said he is spending $75 per vent to have them stripped and rechromed. that sounds like alot to me.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

Just found this thread. Your work is top notch. Seems like a fair investment and the parts look good. Maybe some day I can get a complete set up from you.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

I'm sending off 4 round ball vents and one center vent to be chromed. I was told resin casted parts are harder to Chrome because of the mold release. so I had to soak them in purple power and then spray them off with carburetor cleaner. the chrome guy told me after that then I need to do a test with scotch tape to see how well it sticks. all is good on my end let's see how they turn out. unfortunately it's a five week turnaround but when I get them back I will have one complete ready to sell. after this first test I will make a whole bunch more so everybody gets one I have 11 people on my list so far let me know if you want a complete assembly and I will put you on the list.

Anyone know what the knob in the bottom center is for? I have the same one but no wires were hooked up to it when I got the truck.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

working on the smaller vent ball conversion now. the small one is 2 1/4 in tall. it will fit fine on the sides of our dash for the 64-66.



cut out and sanded smooth.

inserted the center piece from one of my casted parts.

compair the original to the new smaller side vent.

next i will cast the new part and send it out for chroming and it will look like a factory 64-66 truck vent but for the side of the dash.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

That smaller vent looks good.

I did a little online research on resin casting, just a question for you, what material are you using for the parts and for making the molds?
