Some people have asked about the heater I used. Since it came with the truck I'm not sure exactly which model it is but this one from Summit looks pretty close. Summit Racing® Automotive Heaters SUM-991106 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

We deleted the right side fan control and went with a three position carling switch. The left side heat and defrost / heater levers still work fine to vent the air where you need it.

We mounted it in the original position then built a shroud to channel the air into the port. Blows much better than my original unit. It has three speeds but lets face it, you'll only ever use high in the soft top.

Here is the pic again,

I've been struggling with what to do with my dash. It's an original lhd exmod but it was trashed with lots of exmod holes. I stripped it and had it recovered by a reputable shop but they made the covering so thick, nothing fit. After quite the argument, I stripped it again and opted to linex it. I think it cam out pretty nice and is easy to sand down for a decent fit. Since its already ruined, I went ahead and bought a raptor console for the center. I'll post more pics as it progresses

your build is so solid, even a polka dotted dash would work

But best of all....finally got it back on the road! So I drove into town and bought a big steak. Does 60mph begrudgingly. Smokes a bit on start up......okay, a lot on start up but cleans up fairly quickly.

Which type of cable - outside the brake mounted (early type) or inside the brake mounted (late type)
