I don't have a photo of the hose after it was trimmed down. But, it does require two turns, one to get thru the Vintage Air plastic kick-panel cover and a second to get thru the panel under the fender. The Gates 19045 had enough turns, at the right orientation and distance apart, to get the job done. I'm sure there are many others out there that will work. Just bend a coat hanger and head to the parts store.

Dave, I only used about half of the hose. See picture below. As mentioned it take (2) 90 degree bends, the top heater hose nipple on the Vintage Air evap case run straight towards the side footwell cowl wall. First 90 needed there to head hose downward. Second 90 needed to bend hose through the Vintage Air vent filler panel and out through the firewall hose panel. I cut this hose off as it exited the firewall panel and installed the Vintage air shutoff valve there.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

A little more progress this weekend.

Secured back of radio
Installed Kenwood speakers into package tray
Decided to make a larger cutout of the trans tunnel so shifter can be removed from inside car. Need to fab a cover piece and install it with some clip nuts. If the trans ever has to be remove I think this is a wise move. Had a hard time installing trans because of the shifter stub. Will post a picture when done.
Wired back-up light switch
Installed antenna under dash

On the last item, not sure if this is going to work but it was free so I'm not out anything if it doesn't. I'm eliminating the exterior mounted antenna and wanted a hidden one. Lots if opinions on this but several guys had good results by placing their old mast antenna under the dash. So I cutoff the lugs on the fixed end and hung it in a couple of rubber lined clamps. I placed it so its not against any metal. We'll see!
