I've had a long trawl searching for answers on here but haven't found them, so hopefully I'm not asking the obvious.

my 90 gq shorty (TB42) doesn't have air-con - and as I regularly go for long drives where its hot - and where the cab gets got, I'd like to put in air-con

unfort I can't seem to find any decent 2nd hand air-cons on fleabay, so I'm looking at an aftermarket solution, or trying to work out whether there are some other vehicle solutions that I can hybrid up.

has anyone done this before? or are there any solutions I'm missing?

have you tried any wreckers in your area, that would be the way to go air con was a standard feature in most patrols should not be hard to get hold of.

I have, and unfort the ones I've dealt with have been card holding numptys trying to rip people off. Although I am happy to go to any in the ACT/Queanbeyan area if reccomended by others. - (as long as I haven't been there and burnt before!)

any idea on probable costs (complete - as mine has zero fittings, ducting etc as never fitted with it before)

yeh i know i have been stung by wreckers before and they know the new prices of parts as thats there business and charge accordingly. For example brand new aircon compressor for the gq i've seen on ebay just under a grand so i'd say they may charge between 200-500 at the wreckers. Maybe trying someone who parting out a vehicle in your local classifieds will be the cheapeast way plus you will have to get a air cond guy to gas it up check for leaks and electrics to be wired up eg switches thermo fan fuses and the like. I'll admit it won't be an easy job to do could be looking near a couple of grand all up.

all the best mark
