Last winter project.

 

Bought this evaporator:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HGJCYDE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Expansion valve:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-2003-2004-Ford-Expedition-A-C-Expansion-Valve-Rear-47398ZB-Expansion-Valve-/292766864272?hash=item442a43d390

Fabricated the sheet metal.  The vent was salvaged from a Behr unit.  Fans was a largest SPAL pusher that could be fitted into the available space (5.2").  Added a PWM fan controller.

I am about to take the unit apart and rebuild it.  The reason?  For the last few months, I have not been able to come up with a suitable design for the center console faceplate that would also allow for a radio.  Last week, while staring at it, it dawned on me that if the unit was about 1" taller and the drain hole location was 1" further to the right, the existing Behr center console faceplate would fit perfectly.  Hey, when I first built this thing, my only concern was to wrap as small as an enclosure around the evaporator as possible.  Live and learn.
