Vintage Air install on a '66

It started out pretty good, until you get to routing the flex tubes to the vents. The worst is the LH of course, anyone have a recommedation and/or photos of installing this kit, particularly that tube? Also, if you have the kick-panel speaker deals, those outer vents won't go where they're supposed to, anyone got a neat trick for that?
Thanks

Are your seats out? It makes crawling under the dash MUCH easier. I even had my steering column out when I did this. If you don't want to bother with that, you can pull the wheel off the column; that goes a long way to making access easier.

I routed my LH side up right under the cowl. You need to watch out for the wiper arms though, since they will tear that plastic tubing up. I used zip ties to keep mine clear.

This is not fun, but it is doable if you take your time.

I guess that vintage air does not mean vintage air?

Sounds like a marketing name to me!

Back then I doubt they would've used (or even had) plastic flex tubing
