Being in Georgia, I knew early on I wanted AC. An enclosed cabin here with a mid-engine configuration would be miserable without it and I wanted to be able to actually drive the car on the street. Kit car or not, this thing would have AC.
I bought my dash vents and dials from Vintage Air. The installation was pretty simple – just requiring some holes drilled and slots for the defrost vents. Vintage Air offers a lot of options for vents and dials to choose from. Generally they are fairly inexpensive.
The layout is also subjective but I like the way things look in my setup. The only thing to note is that if you want more than 3 forward air vents, you have to buy a y-adapter to split the Vintage Air Mini outputs. I wanted an even number so both passenger and driver have two vents and I could make the design symmetrical.
