    I still keep thinking about doing this. Then just getting an aux. heater and mount in under the dash, just have to plumb into the defrost also.

    Gotta have heat in MI.

    Baseboard heat!!(forced hot water!)

    I have seen some guys who race on the ice use baseboard heat from a house in their racers to defrost the windsheild,and get some heat--my plumber did the same thing when I told him about that,he was using one of those "sunflower" propane heaters in his 1 ton step van for heat and defrost in the frigid weather(not exactly safe,having a 20lb propane bottle strapped down with bungy cords,but better than getting frostbite I guess)--
    His eyes lit right up when I mentioned using a strip of baseboard heat!--he installed 2 -8 foot sections,and said he needs to plumb in a shutoff valve,because it gets too warm in there now!--and he said the heater hoses were easy to slip over the copper tubing,like they were made for it!:crazy:
