Interior Heater/AC Restore
I was doing some Craigslist searches and came across a 67 interior heater/AC assembly. The metal was shot, but the fiberglass was in excellent shape. Mine was just the opposite, so I bought it and proceeded to work on the restore. I have read that the fiberglass in good condition is very hard to find and he only wanted $50, so I jumped on it. I had to make a few fiberglass resin repairs, but nothing serious.
Here are some pictures I took of the results. I think it turned out pretty good. Probably overrestored for something no one will see, but oh well.
I don't have the heater core in it yet nor have I joined the two sides. I was going to get some rope putty before I bolted it all together to seal the two halves.
I am looking for recommendations on the heater core. I have the original Harrison, but I can tell it has already been repaired once. I am guessing it could be repaired again, but I don't want to put something in that will fail soon down the line. The other option is to get a replacement through NAPA. They still make them and they look like they are copper and aluminum, just like the original. I am just not sure if a new replacement would be more reliable than a fixed original. I obviously don't want to do a heater core replacement anytime soon. Please let me know what you think.
