I agree, it'd be nice to have a separate off button to control the compressor. Nice, sounds like you'll have fun updating your audio and interior looks! While mines apart I plan to add a double din screen and maybe a gauge pod on the pillar or mount them under the cowl of the l88 hood if they'll fit and visible.Here's a decent shot of their new DER controller. Big improvement over the clunky factory control. As I've stated before, the biggest peeve is Classic not adding a pushbutton on-off for the compressor. You have to slide the setting off dash a tad, then it kills the compressor. If there was room enough on the controller, I'd add my own switch. Don't get me wrong, I'm used to the operation now, but it could have been a little more intelligently thought out from the git go.
On the fresh air issue or "Astro Ventilation" as GM like to call it. I used the spring to hold the flap closed, then I sealed it and the surrounding area with some leftover Stinger Roadkill.
I received the new thermostat yesterday, and will implement the replacement into the same time to radio and gauges come out for a single DIN radio with a flip out screen, new amp install and carbon fiber treatment.
Does it ever end?:crazy:
Yeah it never ends, especially with the "while I'm there" mentality.
