They are definately still available. I have one for the Coupe, but as yet have not put it in (I can't find a way to mount the compressor but still get the engine bay to look old school muscle).

Any happys???

Who cares what under the bonnet looks like,as long as the hoses look tidy,not the shortest root like these AC bozos do for best results...

Sell it to me then :P :P :P the compressor can only really go in the origi spot without heaps of heasfcukes...

vik...not worth the trouble :roll: :roll: :roll:
