I will definately take a look at doing that this evening. It would be a huge undertaking to try to make a new box because the tahoe has dual heat and air and it will be sweet if I can keep that in tact. I really appreciate your input. Thanks.
I kinda thought you might run in to this. There was a method to my madness,, it took quite a bit of work to blend my firewall and cab but,,, I think it was worth it! Did you already throw your floor/firewall away?
.
Another possibility is to get just the hvac box from vintageair.com and use the rest of the Tahoe system. You would have to have the high/low a/c hoses custom made to blend the two together. Might work...?
