I called ICE auto air and the owner

said he did not have the components to build a kit,

He said “maybe late January “

there must be another “kit” ?

I already know that many of you

will suggest I gather the parts from

various sorces but that is not

what I’m going to do.

thanks

Having installed an Ice Air system, I would wait for the kit.

I have a ICE Auto Air kit installed and I like it a lot.

it is not hot right now, you can’t charge it up until things warm up anyway.

Put a kit on order and install it in the spring.

An ICE A/C system is essentially a new and complete Clardy system (assembled by a former installer of Clardy A/C systems): you don’t have to worry whether the 40-year-old plastic is too brittle or the fan is nearing the end of its life. So I think that that’s good!

 

When I purchased a condenser, auxiliary fan, and compressor from ICE in 2011, however — I was originally planning to convert my ‘76’s 1976 Clardy from R12 to R134a — I was frankly shocked to receive a non-parallel-flow condenser from him, no larger than my original Clardy condenser, along with an off-brand auxiliary fan, and an allegedly NOS Sanden compressor no longer in its original box. Given I was paying $1,800 for these three underwhelming components (maybe $300 worth of components), I immediately sent them back. I have heard he’s supplying a parallel-flow condenser these days, but I don’t know that from first-hand experience.

 

Regards,

 

Steve

I appreciate all the recommendations for ICE 

i tried to purchase a kit from him this morning but was told he is going on break for several weeks 

as Christmas holiday. Further he

informed me that he needed components to assemble a kit

abd they were not available until the end of January.

this is the reason why I’m seeking 

alternatives

I actually own the dtech system. Haven't installed it yet because I'm waiting for the worlds slowest painter to finish my car. I was hoping somebody on this thread would let us know how it works. I basically just gambled that it was good and bought it.

Wait! You’ve got the slowest painter? I thought I had the slowest painter! ?

 

September 2015 to June 2018 for the ‘76’s Big Re-Paint. No mechanical work, no interior work, no rotisserie. Just a very good re-paint.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

No way! Thats ridiculous at best. Did you hire a team of sloths?

Mine has been in since April 2018 and I'm loosing my mind on this guy. 

You definitely found the worlds slowest painter.

Are you working on the “just work on it when you have time”plan?
That is usually cheapest, but it does take FOREVER!
