A/C Air Conditioning install GEN IV Magnum VintageAir 1965 C10

I use my truck as a daily driver and it gets pretty hot in SC. My wife also asked me to put A/C in the truck (or else she wouldn’t be riding with me in the summer). So, I set about it.
I corresponded with CoolAir our board member that works for VinatgeAir and he recommended that I use the VintageAir GEN IV Magnum unit because of it’s superior electronic controls. VintageAir doesn’t make a GEN IV kit specifically for our trucks so I had to do a custom install based on their universal evaporator kit.
My truck has a LS2 drive-train from a 2005 SSR and I had the OE Sanden scroll compressor. It mounts low on the passenger side, out of sight so I wanted to maintain that. I also wanted to maintain the ECM control of the compressor. The ECM is set up to protect the compressor and to operate the fans to control the high side pressure, so the fans come on only when needed.
I also wanted to minimize the modifications to the truck, no dash chopping, excess hole drilling etc.
I couldn’t find a real detailed custom A/C install thread for our trucks to I decided to document what I did so it could maybe help someone else in the same boat.
The system works great to date. I would certainly recommend VintageAir.
