Vintage Air's E-Z Clip Universal Hose Kit was runner up for Best New Street Rod or Custom Car Product at SEMA 2014.
Our E-Z Clip Refrigerant Hose system is now available as a universal kit. The E-Z Clip refrigerant hose is easy to assemble. The entire process: fabricating, routing and crimping can be done in your own garage. The unique smaller diameter hose allows for tighter radius bends, which makes for a much cleaner install in tight package areas. Kit includes adequate hose length to connect most complete systems, as well as 9 of the most commonly used, nickel plated steel O-ring fittings, cages and clips. Includes: 10 ft. of #6, 6 ft. of #8, and 9 ft. of E-Z Clip hose. Click here for more information.
Tech Topic: Is an Electric Compressor a Good Option
for My Hot Rod?
Over the years, we have received a number of questions regarding electric compressors, and whether or not they are available through Vintage Air. Since the 1990s, our engineers have tested numerous electric compressors as part of Vintage Air's comprehensive research and development program, and we have used them in several all-electric vehicle applications, including the 1990s-era Ford TH!NK.
With that being said, Vintage Air is committed to selling only the best-performing aftermarket air conditioning components. As a result, at this time we do not offer an electric compressor in our catalog because we do not recommend their use in your muscle car or hot rod.
In this video, Vintage Air Vice President Rick Love discusses the importance of safety switches while walking through the process of installing a trinary switch as part of a Vintage Air A/C system.
