    vinage air

    Has anyone successfully fitted an aftermarket vinage air con unit into a hq,hx,hz,wb panel van?
    looking for advice, knowledge and recommendations of which way to go for my wb panel van. I have read a couple threads on here that has touched on it but looking for someone that has fully completed the conversion.
    Regards
    Jon

    That looks great. I look forward to hearing more details from you. I currently have my van off the road and want to sort out the air con set up as well as running rear. Interested in know what unit to buy that fits in the easiest and works efficiently. Look forward to hearing from you..

    Hi Chilli,

    Puzzigully's thread covers most of what you need to know. http://www.mysandman.com.au/forums/s...ht=aftermarket

    The Gen II Compac Heat, Cool and Defrost is the ideal unit. Part #: 68000-VUZ-A

    Ill get my images up there eventually.

    Yes mate, I have a mini LCD temp gauge and the cabin temp dropped 10 degrees over a 40 minute drive. It's certainly worth the effort.
