Under Dash AC vent tubes.

My old vent tubes, the ones that go to like the distribution block to the Outer dash vents and any of those bendable tubes, are old and broken up. What can I use to replace them?

Another Question,
Tell me if im missing a vent outlet, heres what I got
Drivers side dash vent
Passenger side dash vent
Drivers side lower dash vent
Passenger side lower dash vent
Center Dash Air vent
Window Defroster Vent
Am I missing any other vents?
im trying to piece one together.

Re: Under Dash AC vent tubes.

Try a vintage air dealer for the duct work. Or OPG hase it also.

Re: Under Dash AC vent tubes.

A couple of my tubes were splitting, so I used HVAC aluminum duct tape to re-seal them. Not the cloth "duck" tape, but the tru aluminum duct tape. It's basically heavy aluminum foil with a layer of glue on the backside of it. Far heavier than duct-tape. It's NOT a show car, and the tubes were toast anyway...

Works well, the foil conforms to the ridges on the piping and the glue built into the foil tape holds REALLY well!

Just one idea...


In the immortal words of Beaux:
"The only 'done' car is a 'sold' car... "

Ours is now "done" - waiting for the day when we can afford a new one...
