Quick check in.
Car is doing great and running fantastic on E85! Love it!

Now it's getting warmer here and I need to fix the AC cooling system.
I have the G3 Hemi AC compressor that came out of the 2006 Charger on the engine now. I also have the condensor. However I need to make up new lines, get a new dryer, and figure out what else I need to convert to R134.

Have any of you made your own AC lines? Do you have a recommendation on the lines, fittings, dryer, etc that I would need to buy to make this myself?
I can buy freon and have access to the professional gauges and a vacuum pump to get this thing filled, but I need a way to get started on making the lines and any other parts.

Thanks for any advice!

Ryan I used Classic Auto Air's system. Drop the box and it replaces everything with modern non vacuum controllers. Check their web site, I like mine.

Haven't posted in a while.
Drove my daughter to school today and then onto work in the 68.
With less cars on the road this week and good weather, I felt it was a good time to stretch her legs.   cheers
Car is running great.
