    I have no real plans for it right now. It leaves rubber just fine the way it is.
    Besides, who wants to go light speed in something with no roof.

    I'll just clean it up and make it pretty

    I actually used it while the top was down. It gets real hot sitting at a signal.

    LOL, try that in a black car with one window down cause your passenger side motor doesnt like the heat, in pants and long sleeves. Going to try and fit the A/C this summer though.

    The engine bay looks good. You may want to do a stock HO conversion to the 'Vert ie SEFI HO

    A/C was standard on the LS, so that's why mine had it. The PEP packages usually included A/C also, and those were popular back in the day. I really can't recall seeing a convertible without factory air, in fact. However the cars were shipped to Car Craft, that's how they chopped them.

    When I first got my convertible in '96 the A/C worked great. Then the next summer it lost the freon and I never fixed the system. It was kind of nice to have with the top up, I will admit that. Now that it's removed from the car, trips are very, very hot depending on the time of day I'm travelling. Sometimes I wish it was still in the car...
