Here's some pics of the "working" system.  I'll probably clean up the wiring a bit when I re-make the harness for the lights/horns/etc and incorporate the AC wiring into that harness. 

I also decided to use a Billet Specialties dual bulkhead connector on the firewall instead of holes with grommets.  The location is where the stock heater control valve was located so I made an aluminum plate the same size as the valve and put the connectors in it.  I then spliced an external heater control valve (from a Peterbilt truck) into the heater hose and will run the cable from the heater control to the new in-line valve. 

I'm toying with the idea of doing a complete re-wire with an always hot bus, switched buss,  panel light bus, and ground bus with each circuit taking off from it's proper bus.  Thinking about two different fuse panels - one for switched and the other for hot.

It looks really good. I like the idea of an adjustable thermostat on the evaporator, instead of adding hot air to control the temperature.

The evaporator uses an old-school expansion valve and has a "temperature" knob along with three fan speeds.  From my limited use I think this will at least keep things bearable when the temps are over a hundred.  This would be fantastic in an old pickup truck.

I agree with you about the temp adjusting.  Our 2001 Dodge pickup just mixes warm air in to adjust the temp.  This system just cycles the compressor on and off to maintain temp.
