First, I have a '67 with in dash air. The heaterbox is cracked in a few places (all out of site); what's the best way to repair it?
Second, I'm wanting to put non-functional lower brake scoops on my '67. What's the difference between the standard non-functional and the California Special scoops? I know one is supposedly "open" and the other "closed". Does anyone have pictures of them? Thanks.

I had excellent luck using a two part clear epoxy to fix the cracks in my heater box (most places from the inside). I also used it to build up the area where the clips that hold it together go and used a dremmel tool to shape the area to accomodate the clip.

This may not be the best picture, but this is how the CS scoops look (right now) on my 67. To be finished, they should have a screen-type insert to help disguise the fact that they are not functional. http://members14.clubphoto.com/_cgi-bin/getImage.pl?imgID=8958107-8085&trans=
I bought the closed type so I would have the option of using them as is or cutting them out to make them functional. I wouldn't buy the open ones unless you are prepared to actually vent them to the brakes. Otherwise they'll just be a wind, dirt, and water trap.
Expect them NOT to fit. Ask Laurie about hers. I got fed up with mine and went ahead and molded them in with fiberglass. They look good but I expect the fiberglass will start cracking in the future. Bolting them on should work out better in the long term.
