Passenger side engine bay...nice and empty.

Finished castrating the A/C and all the other stuff I did not need or use. Notice the freeze plugs on the firewall where A/C hoses used to be. I cut the middle of the existing rubber plug and inserted the freeze plug within it so that the metal would be covered with the original rubber seal.

Did your suspension raise up noticeably when you took the AC system out?

The compressor has been out for years, I don't remember but yeah probably 10 to 12 inches LOL.
I never got around to taking out the hoses, radiator, condenser and all the stuff that goes with it.
