The fellow who painted my 66 coupe and tried to install 67 doors on the 66. This was before I knew and he knew that GM changed the door hinges so that you could not do that. Jim

Maybe it was just me, but trying to reinstall the vent window assembly into the door of an early convertible without scratching the new paint job was a real challenge.

I have to do both the front and rear on my sedan for the same reason. I am VERY afraid and so it hasn't happened yet. I have both seals in a box for 2 years now.

How about installing the Corsa dash, with the AC hose going past the to left outlet.

Seth,

Ok, so you're complaining about the hose in the way. A/c actually makes removing a dash panel a bit EASIER because you can take out the a/c vent assembly first, then use the resulting hole to reach that otherwise all but impossible-to-reach Houdini button (you need him to reach it) on top of the light switch, so to release the lights control knob. It makes reaching it a minor inconvenience, instead of a major one. It may be a trade-off, but one I'll gladly take, to the point that I wish all Corvairs were air conditioned.

-Mark
