    The wiring under the hood or in the dash? either way I would find a pull a part junkyard harness. Is your car in Japan with you? I could get you one on a trip to the junkyard if you need it there. Thanks for your service!

    Just try to find another harness if you have all the other parts. That harness isn't very hard to get out.

    I’m doing a Hot Rod Air unit in my El Camino project. Here’s a link to the mockup portion.

    As far as I know HRA is now out of business, I do know some of their vendors still have some units still on the shelf…..problem is there would be no factory support recourse in the event of a bad part.

    Yeah no kidding! I bought one of their evaporators through Summit Racing years ago. Last year I sent them my stock HVAC controls to be modified to work with their system. Found out in Janurary when I still hadn't received them that they were out of business.

    It took a lot of tracking down by I was at least able to get them sent over to the company that normally does the work on them. After 14 long months I at least got my controls back.

    Now I just hope nothing goes wrong with the evaporator otherwise I'll be pulling it out and hoping a Vintage Air goes in its place.
