    the connector to the left is where the vacuum tubes plug in they are going to pose a problem as they are very short and really dont know how it will effect pressure if i extend them

    as for extending them why not just get a piece of vacum hose to make an extention hook it up and see if it works ok

    Do you have any close up pics of the hose? Would it be possible to use/fabricate smaller buttons?

    Yes u will ned to cut the ac controls. As for the vacum lines they should not be affected unless you really extend them

    as long as the seal is good I dont see why a couple of inches would hurt.
