good work there, I like the idea of the VE rack, the length looks pretty right!

Made some good progress last weekend on the condenser, I think everything is going to just fit! ... although I'm not so sure about the A/C pump  :o

I will need to get a 45 degree fitting for the bottom A/C connection on the condenser but other wise I think it will be fine.

After trimming the snout of the water pump I have approx. 10mm gap between the thermo fans and the water pump, so I'm happy enough with that.

First things first, anyone wanting to keep an original Bedford dash and have A/C ... please look for another option, this ones not for you! However if you plan to cut up your dash and make something custom, then you'll be ok!

So, I wanted to sus out all the wiring and controls to see how they all went together, so I did a little test, man it pumps some air! and there are 25 clicks from the lowest speed setting to flat out!


With that sorted it was time to cut into the dash and make this behemoth fit! Its not perfect at the moment, i'd like to get it a bit higher if I can, but generally its up under the dash and workable, but it is going to require the engine cover to be lower, which is not a problem, there was approx. 120-140mm of air gap between the top of the motor and the engine cover, so i'll re-design that as some stage.

I also got a Y piece from Bunnings plumbing section which is the perfect size for the flexible duct to slot into (its mounted behind the vice grips in the picture), so that has connected up the centre and passenger side factory window demister vents to one fitting of the A/C unit, and the second fitting will be dedicated to the driver side vent, once I get some more duct ... my theory is if the two vents out of the A/C unit blow the same pressure it will hopefully mean slightly more air out the driver side vent which is the one you want to work the best, it will also have a straight shot into the vent from the A/C unit, whereas the centre/passenger side ones turn.

And with the dash roughly sat back in place, looks like the 4 holes for the dash facing vents will be pretty easy to setup with the location of the outlets in the centre of the VR/VS dash and I have two eyeball vents on order for the ends of the dash.
