What’s in the box?
« on: January 21, 2024, 12:41:07 AM »
Sometimes persistence pays off. And while my car isn’t a 69, I got the most elusive and important part.

Good find. Does the duct have a number on it is so what is the number on it. The duct is the only piece I have not found yet.

Scan done. I had to whittle a broken tab -that wasn’t from the piece for mock-up, and the scan shows it. The 3d image will eliminate it so it will be cosmetically correct. So far I like it. Definitely not my forte’ of expertise.

In the meantime while waiting for the 3d scan to be finished, I found a few pictures from here for the mount brackets. My car has a power top so I eyeballed it and it took a few Rolling Rocks, but it’s good and secure. I got 1/4” longer screws to get it sinched down. Mocked it up in the trunk and tis werkin. Whatever engineer designed this is a genius, but this bracket is not easy to make, even with aluminum.
I've uploaded a photo of an original for comparison.

3D scan is very cool.

Sorry for the side track but I have a quick question about your last post.  That looks like a 67 rear defroster switch.  Do they mount on a bracket like that?  I assumed they just installed directly through the hole between the gauge cluster screws.  Which would make it vulnerable to a knee.

Now I am thinking I need to track down another part... or make my own, and I agree, it doesn't look like an easy one to make.

The bracket is only for power convertible top applications. Otherwise, the switch is mounted in the spot where the top switch normally goes. Do you need a bracket made?

Fixed the tab for full mock-up. Pulled the sill plates, ran the wires correctly in the channel, while simultaneously installing the rear speaker wire.
Drilled a big hole, installed the setup, smoke test completed, almost done.
