Installing a Vintage Air SureFit In-Dash Kit in an F-100

I recently picked up a 1976 Ford F-100 Flareside project. It’s a somewhat unusual truck, built and sold in California. It has a 302 (where it seems most of these trucks have 360/390 FE motors or the big 460), a T-18 manual trans (affectionately called the Granny Low 4 Speed), power steering and power disc brakes but no A/C, and idiot lights in place of gauges. It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment deal, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, but I knew I “needed” it. I also knew, no matter which way I went with the project, it needed A/C and some real gauges.
