[DML] Re: air conditioning.

If you want more airflow, sealing up the vents in the doors like
previously mentioned is a good place to start.  Another relatively
simple process would be removing the blower motor, and if you have
small skinny arms, reaching into the evaporator housing, and pulling
out crud that has built up in there over 25 years.  I did that to my
car in 2001 and it make a big improvement in airflow.

If this still doesn't cut it for you, there are three more options.  A
new condensor not clogged with bugs and roadgrime which will provide
more efficient cooling.  Removing your evaporator (not fun) and
cleaning out each fin with a pick (I just did that a few weeks ago)
with increase airflow a little bit further.  Also, a VAV orifice tube
might assist as well.  I'll be able to comment on that tomorrow since
my A/C system is being charged tonight after my huge system
replacement this spring.
