Air Conditioning an Avanti R2 - Dec 2014

Some years ago I installed air conditioning in my R2 Avanti. I used a Harrison DA 6 Compressor and my friend Ron Rogers made up a bracket so that it fit and looks good. Ron has sold many of these brackets but he has been getting a few inquiries about using a Sanden 508 compressor. Ron has made up a few of these in Stainless Steel with the face surface polished as befitting for an Avanti. I have enclose a picture of the new brackets. If anybody is interested in buying one of these you can contact Ron at
