Installing air conditioning in a VW bus?

I have seen AC units installed in aircooled busses, a big thing under the passenger side dash was where it was mounted/kinda ate up a bunch of legroom and was ugly.

Rick, this would be for camping with our two dogs (and future kiddo), one who has a sensitivity to the heat and freaks out when it gets over 80 (she's blind and a bit agressive when she gets upset). We live about an hour south of Fresno,CA so it gets very hot.

Make sure your evaporator fan is turning on as soon as you switch on the A/C, that's the way they are usually wired... but of course there were a lot of dealer installed non-Vdub A/C put in VW in general so
I miss the quieter windows up driving, especially when near an 18 wheeler, more than my Vanagon's actual wimpy old A/C.

I had to make a new body tin piece to fill the gap, especially because apparently theyhad to cut a notch in the body work to make the compressor fit in the engine space.
