Air Conditioning Install

I am a new proud owner of an '89 Defender 110, as well as this is my first post.

I am located in hot florida, and AC is a must for me. I am trying to figure out a neat looking way to install one. I have seen the kits designed for Defenders but they are expensive. Has anyone made a custom AC install or used one of the "vintage car ac" packages and made it work? Any help is appreciated. It will be installed on a 200 Td.

Thanks

Yep ... there is a build thread where someone did this with all new parts for about $1000 ... it's there you just have to find it using the search features.

It can be done with enough ingenuity...the interior system is the easy part. Figuring out the correct combination of pulleys and brackets to hang the compressor on the 200 is going to be the tricky part, but it can be done. I have a 110 here in the shop that someone outfitted a universal muscle car system into. I don't think it looks as 'proper' as the model-specific kits out there, but that's not to say there isn't a non-Rover system out there that might look better.

200TDI is super easy. Just put it in the stock location with the stock pulley and tensioner. The bracket to hold the compressor is a 1/2 hour construction project.

Mounting a condenser and running lines is a much bigger part of the job.

Hayden - if ur rig is RHD I have something you might be interested in. It's the 200 TDI elite system that's basically factory look. It's two years old and in near perfect condition. I'm doing a left hand conversion so PM me if you'd like details. Pics in registry.

200 is an easy install- even building brackets and such. I have one here, so pics available if needed/wanted.

I apologize, I made a mistake. The motor is a 2.5 TD not a 200 TDI. I know its under powered, but can't afford to change it right now
