    I just finished the resto on the Heat/AC box for my 74 Duster. I used your rebuild kit to do it. I just have to say it is a great kit with great instructions. I was going to do a Heat/AC box rebuild thread to assist others, but with the instructions in your kit it is not necessary.

    Thanks for the great product.

        Just finished mine - a 73 Dart Sport with AC. Kit is very nice, especially the photo instructions that come with it. Buy with confidence.

              I am also doing this and also very pleased and amazed how easy it is. Just take your time and wow the only problem on mine was me on the vacume lines I might need someone to draw a diagram for me.

                I'll also just mention that I used the DMT kit to rebuild my 73 Duster heat box and the products were totally perfect - fit, quality, everything.

                  Haven't had time to do mine yet, but did purchase the product and after looking at the instructions, I feel certain this will be a simple project

                  DMT is a top notch company. They'll even sell you individual pieces out of their kits if you need them. Really inexpensive too.

                    can you paint the doors with clear lacquer before you glue the foam on. will it stick? my doors were very rusty i don't want them to get rusty again

                        I've never had great luck with clear lacquer on metal like that. I sandblasted my doors and sprayed them with satin black rust paint, then glued the foam on with Super 77. Worked perfectly.

                        I repaired some damaged rivet holes with Plastic Epoxy then redrilled the holes. With washers on the back (inside), new rivets went in perfectly.

                        I scrubbed the airbox clean, sanded it a bit and gave it a couple of coats of clear. Very happy with the results. 100_5642.JPG 100_5659.JPG 100_5664.JPG

                          I just used 2 part epoxy for my housing repairs. But I had a spare box to cut patches out of. I imagine the foam will stick to the lacquer with the right glue.
