'71 Convertible conversion to AC
I am converting my '71 convertible from non-air conditioning to AC. Through a complete and utter brain fart, all of the paintwork was done before I realized the differences in the firewall between the two systems. It looks like most of the work to mount the AC assembly will be cutting new openings and filling unused holes with the exception of the mounts for the blower housing below the defroster plenum. There are two brackets welded to the firewall. Does anyone have any clear photos of the brackets, along with some measurements for placing them? Better yet, does anyone have a parts car they can cut the brackets out of?

Talk to Don at OMS. He may have them and I know he can instruct you on placement. I don't have mine apart yet to take pics, or measurements for you.

Just to let everyone know, Don set me up with mounting brackets and I was able to find a pretty grim AC firewall, but there was enough there to determine hole location and shape. The car is back at the body shop for modifications, so with any luck, serious reassembly should start in the spring.
