You remember, its not that hard, hots on the right and cold is on the right. However with the areas of where the air goes, i dont remember those here let me see farthest to the right is front window de-fog, next to that is de-fog and feet, next is only floor then face and floor and next is only face... and i didnt once have to look at the car.

Mmmm, Purty! If you don't wanna go to all that trouble, I think there's someone on the other board that sells a kit in just about any color vinyl you can think of. smile
