Seeing that every spring and fall I either install the heater or take it off for summer.I decided to mount it permanently behind the seat.Its a real PIA to have to drain the antifreeze and then remove or reinstall the heater hoses ,and antifreeze etc: Now the home made heater has a home.I didn't want the heater hoses in the way of stuff so I ran them underneath the seat and up thru the under seat panel that I had made before to keep cold air etc: out of the cab.I had to cut a oblong hole thru that panel :wallbanging:and run the hoses thru it and used pipe wrap to seal and protect the hoses. I had to make a new box for the heater core so that the fan is mounted on one end of it now and the fan sucks air from behind closer to the window.I also ran a hose along the seat that will blow down at the floor area and also have a hole cut into the hose that will allow air to be blown under my legs along the front of the seat.The fan is a 2 speed fan.I'am not worried about fresh air as there is a certain amount that comes in around the levers .As you can see I still have to paint the plywood box,just not sure what color to go with.Larry
