Replacement Heater Controls
Has any one ever replaced the heater controls with something from a newer vehicle. I know the temp control is cable, the heat/defrost selector is vacuum and the fan is electric. I don't see it being difficult to find a newer control panel and making it work. Maybe even something small enough to mount where the current one is or where the ashtray is to free up room for gauges.
The though has crossed my mind a time or two to graft in the dash from a durango or even a newer Jeep SUV to give the interior an updated look. (I am really into custom interiors) This would require me to get the current system to work with the new controls (then again if I have the money to do that, i might as well put in a new heater/AC unit.
