Converting to Gen IV, love to find authentic center
Well my wife and I have finally had it with cruising top down in 90 degree weather and cooking! We also still want to drive the vert as much as possible...so we both agree it's time to install a after market AC system.
I have researched and have been told that the Gen IV was the coldest and most authentic you can buy....however when I look at the instructions and pieces that come with the kit I feel that to make it better it would be great if I could find a real one piece CENTER VENT and a true AC CONTROL MODULE.
CF NATION: Is there anyone out there who for a reasonable price can sell me the center grill and duct (I need the mounting half of the duct), and the real switch and wheel selection module?
i ask for reasonable because I'm already spending about 1500 for the kit and another 1500 to have it installed. I could go with the new stuff, but my vert is so original that I really want people to think it's factory at first glance. The parts don't have to be perfect, I can always spend a few bucks to get them reconditioned. I checked eBay and people want 100 for just the grill, the entire center duct is 250 and up, the selector is 200 to 250...I'm not trying to spend another 500 dollars on parts that I will get in the kit or already have.
If everyone thinks that is the only way, then I will have to go with what comes with the kit and my non AC stuff will have to work.
I just thought it would be cool if I could put original stuff in places people can see. Any help or advice is appreciated!
