    I plan on have the A/C in the rear blow down from the ceiling, kinda like a new minivan.
    .

    I did the opposite. I wanted the A/C to blow across the headliner, and drop - hopefully cooling more ambient air. Seems to work well. my rear unit's blower is incrediable!!! - - - Vintage Air Monster Cooler

    Well the money was taken out of the account, so I should be getting a box of A/C goodies soon. Either that or a trip to North Carolina to deliver 10 lbs of whoop-ass in a 6 lb sock. If/when this all works out I need to send a shout out to gregw98. I saw his thread and built my package on its shoulders. So to Greg, thanks.

    I can't wait to see the finished "cool" van. I envy you guys with the ability to do these kinds of additions. Great luck on the job ahead. How exciting to have air front and rear!

    Media Blasting

    Second step complete (first step was the cab disassembly): 5 bags of super fine crushed glass, three hours of work, $500 and one slightly annoyed neighbor later, the cab is ready for prime and paint. Once the temps stay above 60 that is.

    The king pins and drag are makings came in the mail and did $1350 worth of A/C kitting. Thinking about sending the under dash unit back and getting a hidden unit,the vents of the under dash kinda point at the dog house.

    Speaking of, does anyone want/need a heat box? Yours for the cost of shipping if you are interested. Also I still have a 15 gallon gas tank up for grabs, same deal yours for the cost of shipping.

    Steering Column disassembly

    I need to take the steering column apart to take the out piece to the powder coaters. Do I need to take the steering wheel off? Also anybody have any idea how to take the shifter column apart with out tearing up the rubber boot that goes on the floor?

    Answered my own question, but....

    Finally got around to pulling the steering wheel, after that it came apart after the taking the turn signal cam apart. Now at the powder coaters.
    What puzzles me is that the steering column was upside down for a couple of weeks. When I took the horn button off, the whole head was full of oil. Had the consistency of gear oil but not the smell. The steering gear has been untouched for 50 years, and after I righted the column for a day or so the oil went back down into the gear. DO I need to open up the gear box and repack it with "corn head" grease or just leave well enough alone? Opinions?
