Any of you guys with original in-dash a/c, have you had the chrome vents on the end replated? I was taking mine apart to sent off to a plater and can't figure out how to pull out the round piece that spins, the actual part the air comes out of. If I don't take it apart, I'm assuming it will be plated together like glue and I won't be able to direct the air flow when it comes back.

This is one of those areas where you might consider looking for a better one and forget about plating. Just a thought.

I couldn't figure out how to get them apart either. I was trying to clean mine. I finally gave up and put the whole thing in the dishwasher.

Also, if you are thinking about re doing the AC and maybe the brake pedal, now is the PERFECT time to get under there with pedal out, maybe column also, and give the cowl a very thorough check for leaks. There is no better time.

Sam: The guy must have been a top end racer, owing to the 279 er's that are residing in the rear. LOL!

No kidding! My cowl is in really excellent shape, and I've seen them about as bad as they can possibly get (ie, that's why I gave up the 67 I had in high school). Also why I paid 2k for a car in primer with no engine or tranny... very little rust. I know I found a gremlin in the passenger quarter and that NO car is literally rust-free, but my cowl, frame, floors, well, the normall places rust rears its ugly head, are in great shape.

I'm glad! Nothing worse than a bad cowl movement.
