Hello there cats and kittens just an update on my AC Center vent situation. I purchased an aftermarket vent from Summit Racing. It probably would have worked but did not have the Aesthetics I was looking for. So I came up with an idea that is working quite well. I took some foam that I got at a craft store. $0.98 and it comes in a sheet like letter size paper. I cut it into little slivers and forced them into the vent at appropriate angles creating corridors so the air to flow through and painted them black. Which I'm not happy about but I can swap them out for silver ones I'm thinking. Anyway took it for a test drive this morning and it was beautiful.
Hey Joe, on a really hot day, if i'm after some extra circulation, I flip the rear quarter vent windows open about a 1/3 to half way.
In my car at least, you receive a nice breeze around yourself.
If i'm on my own, I just flip the one window.
Give it a whirl and see what you think. I understand only too well, what you are wanting to achieve, as here in Oz, we are in the tropics.....
Are you suggesting to do this with the AC on or off ?
I think he's just bragging about the power rear vent windows in the Fleetwood. It's been a while, we're due : )
With the Air Cond running Joe.
Its a bit like an low pressure area around the quarter vents, helps draw the air through the car. If you open them too much, its not as good.. serious.
Hey Kurt, don't all Cadillac's have power quarter windows?
Or just the upmarket FLEETWOOD'S. :-)
Uh, 1964 Coupe de Villes have nice big power rear qtr windows ... not those silly little turn-limited tiny vent windows! What they turn 1" outward. LOL OK. Had to hit back on behalf of us Coupe de Ville owners. Seriously though, it might be worth cracking the rear qtr side windows a bit in the coupe and see if it helps draw the air rearward.
Yeah Kevin, what Jason said. : )
What Jason and Kurt said—PMSL !!
Jason....YOU VERY FUNNY MAN..... :-)
You fixed that dicky ticker lifter yet.... hmmmm hmmmm hmmm.
My dicky and lifters are in very good working order —Thanks for asking !
Its just harder these days — To Be Cool - as we use to be
I do understand the problem
Summer in Florida will make you creative regarding heat —-for sure !
Have you recently checked the AC systems Freon on gauges to be sure it is performing the best it can be ?
Sure the system is under max stress with the heat in FL this time of year
Sometimes a recharge of Freon will help get it as cold as it used to get if it needs a charge
Yes I'm positive the system is working the way it's designed oh, the design is the problem
