    TOOO much hot air from the motor is probably why? remember that the factory was cheap and did not bind many edges.

    Hey Ralph

    You could take the easy route (as I did) and have a professional do the job. Even he complained about the difficulty of working in those foot wells. Never the less I ended up with a great job. There is no way I could have come close to the end result, even if I had started with a good quality kit.
    Opening up the vents should improve comfort in the cooler months, but it appears to be the norm to stuff a rag in the heater box intake to prevent the hot air from flowing in the summer. Wish there was a cost effective way of improving that situation.

    Ed,
    That option seems better all the time. I'm more a nut n bolt guy and not a tailor.....anyone know where/how all the vents tie together? Do they all connect through the heater box? Seems like you should be able to get some fresh cool air through there in the summer from an outside vent. Air flow thru my vents is virtually non existent summer or winter.
