    I bought it on Ebay. Search for rear climate controls. I think the one I found was for a Navigator. Only took about 2 hours to move everything. The real challenge was finding the right gauge wiring, several trips to autozone, home depot etc.

    The climate controls are vacuum controlled which required extending airlines up to the ceiling. The best choice for this is the tubing used for ice despensers in refrigerators. Make sure the tubing is rigid but flexible. I made the mistake of using airline for fish tanks and the tubing collapsed under the suction.

    As you can see in the picture I had to superglue the control panel to the housing. This was a bad idea as the glue ran. Buts thats ok cause I plan on changing the face of it to a white faceplate. The stock controls dont fit flush you have to remove the plastic extensions which hold it in place on the dash. When I redo the face plate I plan on rebonding it from the back side so the glue doesnt run.

    Marine here... Nice place huh? Not trying to go back. I really am digging your install.
    I never worked with bondo before, was it difficult? How about the AC stuff?
    Love it...
    Might have to steal your idea....
