    I ordered one today from NAPA. Not for a Delorean. (No listing) It was for a 85 Corvette. I hope it works. Should be here in the morning. I'm not home right now. At relatives 160 miles away. The car gave me a scare. The guages started jumping all around. For some reason, I thought it was my newly installed alternator. Turned out to be the "dash services" fuse. I just took every fuse out and sanded them shinny last night. To heck with that. I just replaced them all with new today.

    I'm still on the trip. (The 175 mile trip, not to NY yet) I go back today. On this trip I'm just switching the AC on and off. I got a switch at NAPA, but it is slightly different. I will need to modify the spade end. So I'll be switching on the way home.

    Put the new switch on today and it is cycling. The temp out of the vents is about 50 degrees. Not quite as cold as before, but it doesn't freeze. The blowers are constant.

    As far as the original post, I got an extension hard pipe to go over the side of the frame. Water should drain away now.

    Evacuate it and charge it by weight and you'll be cool...
