UV tint on the front windshield isn't exactly clear. At night some people have reported visibility issues while driving past headlights and other sources of lights. Not only that but the film is fairly expensive. Last I checked you're looking at 300-400$.

I say your AC system is working pretty good and generally speaking last the life of the car. What you can do is gently clean the condenser with a garden hose and you can do what I did and that is insulate any AC lines that you see are sweating.

Insulating the lines? That’s way new to me. Didn’t know that that was effective.

Today it was 109, 15% humidity.
I managed to get 49 while idling and 44 while driving around town lol.

You're probably right.

I managed to retrofit an hvac system from a '72 El Dorado into my p71. The compressor is as large as the engine. Outside temp 110° sitting in a traffic jam I now enjoy snow coming out of the dash. At highway speed,by have to turn it off or I have a rolling freezer. I am of course, kidding but if I thought I could get away with it I would convert back to R12 freon. This new stuff isn't nearly as effective at heat transfer.

Switch to Fahrenheit.

8 C = 46.4 F

You only switched half. What's the other half? Is he living on Mars?

No, that's not it. You did one in one direction and the other in the opposite direction. You have to convert both the same.

If you want 8°C to equal 46.4°F, then you have to use 85°C. That gives you an ambient of 185°F. Kind of toasty out there.

It's not 185 F on Mars or in Connecticut.

Sorry, my bad. Wrong planet. I meant to say Uranus.

Maybe he got the ambient off the local TV weather show. They probably were using °F, like just about all of the country. And maybe he got his thermometer while vacationing in Montreal. You know, up there in the U.S. of A.'s hat. Where they use that wacky Celsius scale. That way you can use both scales and your math works.

Nah, mine's about 37 C. laugh



You mean the U.S. of A. uses that wacky Fahrenheit scale. 'Cause the other 7+ billion people on this planet use the totally sensible 0 to 100 Celsius scale.

Got the AC shop to throw a full recharge at my newly aquired P71 with inoperative AC.
Humid 90F ambient yielded 50-55f at vents in idle in Norm AC, 45F on max ac.

Brand new AC compressor and condenser. 36oz charge, since I did not want to open new can for 2oz.
80F outside, 77% humidity.
Set at 60F and max - I got 26F at the left side driver vent at idle. The right side vent was 33F.
This was only for a short time during the AC recharge. I did not run it that cold for long.
