Re: Air conditioning.



I installed the trunk system pictured for a '62 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud ll a few years ago. It belonged to our previous member Bob Andrews, aka 62 pluckedchicken. He bought the Rolls for a limo to use for weddings, etc.. It was a RH drive car with the V-8. It was quite a project! We had to install as much as possible between Mon and Wed and then put it back together so it could be used Fri/Sat/Sun.  The rear package tray had 42 screws holding the lower section in. It was a nightmare working the lines all the way to the rear of the car from the engine compartment. They have belly pans to enclose the heating ducts and mechanicals. It didn't help that Classic Air messed up twice and sent us 6 cyl parts for the 8 cyl installation. The mounting brackets and condenser were way different. It felt like a great accomplishment to get 'er done!

PS: I also did some engine and steering work on the '79 'vette.  The rear was modified so it doesn't look exactly '79

Classic Air system is different, as the photo shows a bunch of AC parts.

Thanks,
