Re: 68 S/C update.....

what I meant was that you really want fresh COLD air for that puppy to make make power. If all the air has to come through the radiator then it's going to be hot...

If there was a way to extend that air filter to reach fresh air (through the rad support or below it) then it would "seem" better... i'm not eninge pro though, just an observation...

When I put the burb back together, I'll take a look at that.

I'm picking up what you're putting down, , I will eventually try to plumb a "cold air" box for air intake. Which should make a big difference.

Sounds good.

Well I finally got the new insulation and floormat installed. I can really tell the difference on the inside of the cab as far as heat and noise. This pretty well wraps up my interior "remodel", . Just a few more little things and I can call this "Build" complete, .

I got it from Early Classic, but it came from one of their vendors but I'm not remember who. The quality and an thickness are great as well as the contours. It has a few air pockets, but that's mostly due to me using the Fatmat (double layer). I think they will go away after sitting the truck out in the sun for a few days.
