    Vintage Mustang Forum
    I recently bought my 66 coupe and decided that for the moment until I can afford a new heater box since mine is all ripped and rusted that I’d do a heater delete since I don’t need to drive her in winter I don’t need the heater or defroster. Anyway, I don’t know what to do with the heater hoses...
