Poor Man\'s AC......

Just ordered mine anticipating a long and hot drive to the Melt......



From their website.....

Misting works by forcing pressurized water through specially designed nozzles which produce an ultra fine mist. The water droplets that these nozzles create are so small (about one-half the diameter of a strand of hair), they instantly flash evaporate. The evaporation can reduce the surrounding air as much as 30° F (15° C) in just seconds. This dome of cool refreshing air insulates you from the harsh effects of the hot sun making any outdoor activity more safe and enjoyable.

Re: Poor Man\'s AC......

Crow, I have been toying with the idea of fitting an air vent in the roof of my tintop. As seen on WRC cars. But I want a fold down vent, so I can pick when it's safe to have it open.
Sort of like a sailing dinghy venturi bailer.
Big trucks used to have them, but I would need a narrow one to fit on a tintop.
My aim is to be able to open it on highway and gravel roads,
on gravel it would pressurise the cab and keep dust intrusion to a minimum.

Re: Poor Man\'s AC......

Thanks, I have gone so far as to price a dinghy bailer at a marine shop. They are stainless with a rubber seal to make them watertight, Are narrow enough to fit in the high part of the roof convolutions too.
Just too expensive right now. I have a load of things to spend my money on. If I'm still driving next summer, I hope to fit at least one, probably in the roof centre so as to cool both front seats.

Re: Poor Man\'s AC......

I once had an S-10 with no air. When road trips came up, I made sure all the drain lugs were in the floor and then filled it with a couple bags of ice and drove with my sandals. When I got to my destination, I simply pulled the plugs to drain, replaced the plugs, then refilled on the way home.

Re: Poor Man\'s AC......

Cool idea! I used to have redneck A/C in mine, but then my doggie took it over!



Wish I could bring him with me, but he keeps hogging the A/C!
