Jordan, how did the dash installation go? Did you do anything with your heater box while your dash was out? I have a few heater boxes and when I pulled them out they all had dirt and debris inside them, but that was from the metal housing of the car rusting through and all that dirt, rust and stuff dropping in.

that is actually the reason why I took the dash out in the first place, the heater core was shot. I then bought the whole heater unit on ebay for like $50 including shipping and it was broken....ugh the guy wouldnt give me a refund but he will take like $15 off the next thing I buy from him. so I just put the new heater core in the old unit. I havent put the dash in because im spraying another coat of paint on it next weekend, and I will start reasembly the following week.

i wus dealing with some small cpu fans the other day and i thought about our opel heater system and how u can bairly feel any air that comes out of those little vent on the dash, will i wus thinkin why not take a small circle fan thats the same diamter as the rubber hose that delivers the air to those vents, cut the tubing in half install the fan then , the hard part figuring how to reconect the ends but once i figure that out it would work great ive seen mods like this done to some of the 90's mercedes that have the rear heater vents worked great, i will try this in the next week or so and report the outcome, ill laos post a pic of my proposed design for all to see.
