Replaced all the AC component seals
 
After getting foam/dust/particles blowing into my eyes, I finally got around to tearing down the interior, clean, and replace all the worn out foams.

The items used where MD and Frost King foam tape in various sizes at Home Depot.

Cleaned it up with an APC, remove all the old foam, prep area with denatured alcohol, and the applied the correct size foam into place.

All was done in a day and less than $50, totally worth restoring. I tore down the blower and the rest of the AC components that has seals but forgot to take pics.

Dash Vent Lift Repair
 
Nice work! I would really like to see your dash vent repair...preparation, glues used, how you held the dash in place while the repair hardened etc. Any more pictures of that? Thanks!

I can't recall the adhesive used for the repair but it was a Loctite brand that was heat resistant. I pulled the dash out, removed the defroster vent, and applied the adhesive where the dash was lifting. Temporarily install the dash back in the car and away from the sun. I had some memory foam wedge that I used to pushed the lifted parts down against the windshield until it dried but I left it for over a day.

Removed the dash to ensure that it stays down and reinstalled.

I need to do something like this on my '93. I am getting outside air when set to recirculating. How hard is it to get to the heater/AC box? BGB doesn't seem to cover that very well.
