Looks great! Do you get enough cold air through the one bottom vent?

Yeah. It comes out of the bottom vent more. I think if tossed another gauge in the bottom the car would still cool down enough. I've closed the bottom to test it and it cools down pretty good without either of them.

$630 a month? How big of a place do you have? $850 a month here will get you 1 room and a bathroom. :O

I pay for all my own bills, just not much rent. wink Don't feel like moving out till I have saved enough for a down payment on a house. Would rather put $1400/month towards my own house than $1000/month towards someone elses mortage. wink

It has a white light in the gauge it lights up. You can see it fine at night.

How does the trim piece that houses the vents in the door come off??? I think they just snap on and off but I hate to start pulling on stuff without knowing. How many clips? Thanks guys.

The way  I did it was remove vent foils and broke the inner grill. Then dremeled the whole to the apporiate size so they would snuggly fit in. Incase I have to remove them later.

Oldsman: Very nice. I've been very impressed with the way you've tastefully modded your Riv. Props to you. cool

My question is "the panel itself"...does it just snap on and if so where are the tabs?

I don't think so I tried that route but from what I can tell you need to take the whole door panel off.

It is not that hard to remove the door panel. It is pretty easy.

Yeah you need to take the whole thing off. Its only like 5 screws I think. Then you just have to pull up on the door and it will come out.

jax95riv, I pulled all this stuff apart today and will post pics soon. I thought it was a PITA, and not the kind of thing I'd like to do more than once.

u need to get a vacuum hose tee and run the white platic line into the cabin, youll need to drill a hole in the firewall. Then u need splicce some wires from a fused source. and i just took out a vent and put it in there and ran the wires inside the vent and drilled a whole to wire it to something. the gauge will fit and if its too small then just wrap it with tape till it does.
