I just found this thread. Very nice.  What is the A/C system you are running?  My Cuda came with a factory system but I'm thinking that I can do better even though I restored the heater box.

Thanks!The PO added Vintage Air to a Non-AC car, I'm definitely keeping it! It blew cold before I took it apart.

Cowl Blacked out.
Scuff, Clean, Tape, Mask,  :cheers:  Spray, Clean up... Work on refinishing the grill tomorrow.

Have a new rear harness to run too. Old one had several brittle and or bare wires, multiple spliced and hacked wires and the wrap was disintigrating where it was still remaining. Plus all the black bed liner overspray on it.
Going to have the rear brakes done and Front End Alignment done on Thursday.

Now I  noticed that the Dome light comes one when I press the Brake pedal...
The front side marker lights don't light...
I'm guessing that the front marker bulbs a burnt out and grounding is amiss...
Noticed that the M&H rear light harness has a ground tab on each of the tail and reverse sockets. Going to add a short ground wire to each to bond to the mounting studs. Pull the front marker housings and check the bulbs.
Also the Map light switch only turns the map light on if the door is open...  :clueless: :dunno: sheesh  :banghead: :pullinghair:
Would rather paint the grill. :2thumbs:
