Default hot air on drivers side

So, the drivers side was blowing hot air and the passenger nice and cold.
We ripped the dash apart and figured out that the two flaps that control the blocking of heat from the heat exchanger by design just didn't work that well even though they actuated.
We installed two inline valves from the engine cooling system for use in summer months here in Texas so that no hot water was entering the AC EVAP system. I thought all was fixed.
However, after being parked in really hot weather the drivers side still blows warm air so now i suspect that warmer hot air from behind the dash is being sucked into the vent system on the drivers and driver center vent.
Does anyone have experience in this. We were pretty sure we assembled the dash back together properly
any thoughts?

have you watched the 3 Heatertreater.net videos on YouTube
they should have called themselves climatecontrol, because it doesn't just cover the heating
also on YouTube, many others have submitted fixes

just type into the youtube website
