RHD 300tdi air conditioning options

I've had enough with showing up to work soaked, and have decided to install AC in my 1984 RHD 110.

I have a 300tdi installed, with the AC bracket, tensioner and pulleys in place all ready (currently using it as a air pump to re-inflate tires, etc)

I'll need a new compressor, evaporator and condenser along with a receiver dryer and hoses. While I'm at it, I'm not adverse to putting in a rear evaporator at the same time to keep the dog happy.

Since this is a RHD, the stock NAS evaporator won't work. I'm also not a fan of paying a premium for "genuine" parts.

Aside from the elite air kit (I've got an email and call into them) has anyone done something similar with good success?

If so, links or pictures would be much appreciated.

Vin
