Shall share updates in due course ..

Hi Anirban,
You can also remove the air distributor (the fibre piece with 4 vents) to gain access to the filter element in front of the evaporator (Cooling coil). In my case the filter was fully clogged and the AC mechanic got rid of it and the air flow is excellent.
The design flaw here is there is no filter at the suction side. You may take this opportunity to improvise a filtering method at the suction side.

While putting back the vents and other AC parts you can surround the hose couplings with a thin layer of sponge (No need to head for a rexin shop now. You can find one inside a brand new formal shirt packing). This way any air leak could be fixed. To me it appears like the factory fitted carpet material is good enough for thermal insulation. Just attend to a few places like the entry for the AC Aluminium pipes and near the pedal brackets. You may also think of extending a ground connection for the AC blower directly from the battery -ve itself.

Hi Ilango,
In my case, a few of the screws which held the air distributor in place were located at such an obtuse angle, that accessing them using a miniature screw driver proved impossible. Hence, I had to pass up the opportunity.

Thankfully, the air flow seems adequate.

Fitting a filter at the suction end seems a bit difficult. It would have meant removal of the entire AC unit. I' ll try to figure out a way to do something about it later, hopefully, which would render filter replacement a relatively easier process.

Thankfully, it was not required as all openings in the firewall through which the plumbing passed were sealed off with rubber grommets/appeared well insulated.


BTW, I managed to fit everything together starting early morning today (yesterday evening was devoted to watching the India vs WI cricket match).

The undersides of the bonnet have also been lined with heatlon sheeting.

What is the purpose of fitting heatlon sheets on the bonnet? I doubt they would help in any significant sound deadening. And the NISSAN A12 is already a silent powerplant except the retrofitted radiator fan.

The intent is to make the car "super silent" and secondly, to prevent the silicone body filler and paint underneath the bonnet from flaking off.

Sir, your car looks super good. Kudos to all restoration that you've done . I saw the cybercity sticker on your car. If you work inside Magarpatta city, i'd be happy to meet up with you and see your NE118 as I do come to Magarpatta city for work.

I'm sorry that I couldn't PM you, so this message.

Thanks,

Hi Pranav,

Yes, my organization has offices in Magarpatta. We can certainly meet up one of these days.

Autodoctor,

The seals used to be available at Kalpana Motors, Nanapeth.
In case these are not available readily, they can source it on your behalf.
