Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

I'm pretty happy with how the new vent balls turned out. The side vent just didn't look correct before....Jim did good coming up with this version....I think its as close to factory as can be....Thanks.. Jim

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

so here is the latest update... I hired my roommate to make all the parts and my part is to make all the molds , all shipping , all the sales work and advertising. we had a set back with the molds two of them dried out and now I need to make more. I'm picky about my work so I'm training my roommate to produce my level of quality. we will get there someday soon I hope because I know your all waiting for your parts.

on a positive note after paying on credit cards over the last 18 years I made my final payment on Monday earlier this week. now I can concentrate on buying better supplies for my project. thank you all for the feedback and your patience.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

an update.

so i called the chrome guy this morning. i should have the center vents back from chrome in 2 weeks and the large vent balls in 6 weeks. i know its taking a long time. I shipped 1 small vent ball to a different chrome place and they charged me $90 and that did not cover shipping it to them. the quality was horrible. so im sticking with the guy i have but the down side is we all wait a long time.

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

Hey Jim. I know that quality is not a fast process. I know I'm okay waiting. Did you get my message from eBay about putting me on the list?

Jim, Do you have two original OEM GM vent balls that have been rechromed in stock? I have my pair to trade or to send in to have rechromed just want them done nicely for the faceplate I got from you. Thanks, Mark

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

I have really good news. one of my customers has made the ductwork to fit the faceplates I make. he said you can hook up any aftermarket A/C to it. this is going to be awesome for all of us

Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

its very solid and took me about an hour. I just bought a sand blaster today so the next step is to sand blast the dash and paint then mount it on the wall in my A/C vent production wall

Smile Re: 1964-1966 center a/c vent

I did some calling on converting a non A/C truck (like mine) to factory look air.

Vintage Air 4 with the Deluxe heater conversion is part # 941164 $1,395.00
the brackets for the 230 strait 6 is part #146036 (comes with)
if you want to run electric fan like I do the radiator is $279 the fan $170 and the shroud $150.
trinary switch is $35 extra

the Vintage air 4 has 4 outlet hoses at 2 1/2 in and 2 defrost hoses at 2in.
so this will work well for those of us that want that factory look with the center vents and the side vents that I make and the air box that NSB29 makes.

I cant wait till I do mine
