Thanks, thinking about smoothing the firewall and going to a vintage air system. I don't want AC, but want to keep a heater.

I was hoping you would say that. From the little home work I have done so far seem to be the way to go. Did they fit with little trouble.

Found some photos of what the Green Machine looked like a few years before I started the rebuild. This is why I try to explain First Gen car's can look good on the outside, but be very time and $ intensive when the full story is told.
Always do you home work.
