Will a/c from a second gen brat ('82) fit on a first gen ('79)? Are any adaptations required?

the a/c hoses on gen 1 go straight through the firewall and 2nd gen have fittings right at it.

i have thought about removing the core and trying to swap them out but am now selling my other brat cuz i need $$.

you would probably be able to do it with some time and resources and  a bit of madness. i have looked in to finding a/c components for my gen 1 as i am missing compressor, condensor and variouse hoses but they are tending to be illusive so the thought has crossed my mind.

2nd gen parts are easier to find so its a matter of if the core will fit in the gen 1 air box assembly.

then you go from there.
