    Re: Fixing my Diesel

    Project is about done.
    Rear seat works. Front seats are great.
    Seat belts installed for the front seats, still need to do the rears.
    Center console that is a great arm rest is nice to be able to fold up for a third seat.
    Still need to add some trim and the shifter boot.
    Installed a couple bump stops for the rear seat to sit down on.
    Next is to design and make a cup holder.

    I made and used diamond plate for door trim but not really liking it so took
    some trim from a newer club cab Dakota and trimmed it to fit my truck.

    I like it better.

    Re: Fixing my Diesel

    Truck heater is better now.
    Saw this fix on a 1st gen Dodge truck facebook page.


    The heater box (below the glove box area) gets full of leaves over the years.
    I cut a 4-1/2 inch hole. Vacuumed it out.
    Then added a round removable door I picked up at a marine supply store.
    Screwed the ring in first. Then the round "door" screws into the ring.


    Next clean-out will be easy.

    I did the same thing on mine but used a clear deck port. My clutch cycling switch on my A/C is broken so I can watch the evaporator ice up and turn the compressor off manually.

    Re: Fixing my Diesel

    Good idea...and you'll know when its time to clean it again.
    BUT I thought that was the hot/heater not the evaporator.

    The heater core is mounted more towards the center of the dash.

    Re: Fixing my Diesel

    does your truck have a removeable cowel top ?

    I haven't read the entire thread so I don't know off hand exactly what truck this would be
    but if your cowel top is removeable there's something you might want to look for
    a "street scene" (brand name) smooth cowel top cover

    I bought one for my 01 f150
    painted it makes the truck look much better than the black plastic vent at the bottom of the windshield did .. and it does something else that's even better

    it keeps the junk and rain out of the cowel top altogether

    no crap blowing out of the vents and even better , my a/c doesn't stink like horse manure anymore because the rain can't collect in the heater box now

    5 years it's been on my truck now and I haven't had a moment of stink outta the a/c since

    strret scene smooth cowel top is fiberglass $100-150 ish
    Jegs and Summit used to carry them along with some of the truck parts places

    Jegs also do astra hammond rear pick up louvers cheep too
