Heater box and missing pieces

While i am under the dash It is time for a new heater core, So off comes the heater box
The guy before me did a lot of things to this car and some I just have to ask why

Its missing some pieces and and Air duct hoses.
I have ordered a core, gasket kit and 2 1/2 inch air duct hose
I am guessing the larger hose is a 5 inch or square hose.

Here is a picture of what I have.
Can you someone tell me what I am missing

Thanks

Oh I pulled the blower motor and started to clean it up
The inner fender is falling apart and will need to be replaced
The white paint and rhino guard over spray is from before me

There is some missing plastic
i hope I can repair it enough to work

I'm going to assume your car is a 1970 through 72? If so I have the flexible fabric ductwork that goes from your big distribution box up to the passenger side vent. You might need other stuff also but I need to ask you a couple questions. Feel free to give me a call 317-727-7041.

If you clean the plastic bits very well two or three times and then spray them with a light coat of satin black it really makes them look great.

The small round outlet on the passenger side main plenum is for the crotch blower. Flexible fabric hose to an outlet under the dash.

Thanks guys
Satin black was a good match
the heater box blasted with water then wiped down with thinner and painted
the new to me parts are too nice to paint
thanks again 442crzy
