Air Conditioning Unit Arrived   Leave a comment

The Southern Air air conditioner from North Racecars arrived earlier this week. The unit is a complete system, and includes the air conditioning pump and engine mounting brackets, condenser, drier, fan speed and temp controller, and hoses. The plastic control panel will not be used — if there is room, I will mount the controls onto the center console or the dash board.

Several Coupe and Roadster builders have used this unit with for their cars. I will have cooling as well as heating and windshield defrosting. Plumbing will be tight, I have seen some completed and in-progress Coupes and will have to stuff things in as tightly as possible.

Installation of this component system is many months away, since I am still waiting for the Coupe kit to arrive. This is not a bad thing – I (still) need to clean out my garage to make room for The Coupe Project!

I will send the A/C pump and its mounting bracket to Chris at the Engine Factory later this week for fitting and testing – this will be an important step.
