    I thought I posted pictures of mine but I guess not. Here you go. It fits great and works great too. There was room for the tissue dispenser too. The dash plaque did not come with the kit. I had it custom made to look original but has different designations for the switches.

      Jon - That's a very nice, clean installation. Kudos to you. Where did you get the dash control plate done?

        That is a very sanitay installation. Does it include heat? I see there is a kick back up under the dash that my 39 does not have. It looks like agreat place to put things like the fuse block, etc.

          Oh, you wanted it to look stock? Retaining the PS, generator, supercharger is even more difficult.

          Yeah Jack, that is the problem. I wish I could find a system that would mount up with the current P/S, and Gen.

          I've only had the car a short time, but after last summer, the boss put it on the "have to" list.
          It didn't take much research to find out how difficult it woud be seeing there are no "plug and play" kits out there.

          I have never fabricated anything like mounts, etc., don't know if I could do it, with out screwing the whole thing up.

            I agree.

            Mounting things like AC to an engine not designed with them in mind is a daunting task. The Horsepower to run an AC compressor is significant as is the weight of the compressor, etc. and all this must be transferred to the engine block using bolt holes etc. that are already being used.

              I had it made at a graphics shop in Vacaville. It took the guy about 10 minutes to re-create it on the computer while I watched. I had a few extras but I couln'd find them yesterday. If you want one let me know and I'll look a little further. Send me a PM if so.
