      Ha! I wasn't in the video but thanks! Guy in video when truck was being unloaded was the nosy neighbor. He and about a 1000 of his friends all had exact vehicle when they first came out in 1943.

      Best part is nobody has a clue what year/era the truck is. 1963-69 years of the N.

                • The attention to detail is outstanding - over the top! So I would like to ask, Do you like the quality of the controls and duct/vents of the Vintage Air SureFit evaporator kit. Any thing you didn't like (or changed) with the install/kit?

                      Not 100% of it installed yet.

                      The underdash unit once in fits quite nice even thought I did not follow instructions and remove a large portion of the firewall insulation. Mine was too nice to cut up.
                      The plastic part for vent under dash looks a bit cheap and I will most likely upgrade the heater control knobs. Overall a pretty decent kit. I will use another in a different truck. I added extra knobs to run the 10 spd automatic to the Vintage control panel/duct piece. I will most likely get more '66 dash knobs and use them for the Vintage Controls. It will all do for now until I get truck on the road and have it pretty much sorted. Then I will pick away at little things until I get it where I want it.

                          the only surprise is that John took this long to find this thread.
