Thanks Jim. As so often is the case, had I spent a little time up front and removed the thing blocking me instead of struggling around it, I actually would have saved some time.

One last note- I decided to check my decklid condenser for contamination and holy crow, I'm glad I did. A Q-tip swab came out pure gray. I bought some AC flush after checking with Griff on my options, and proceeded to flush and then use compressed air to clean out the condenser. The amount of fine gritty crap I got out was impressive. I'm glad the one original part that I am reusing will not be contaminating my otherwise entirely brand new system. I strongly suggest anyone doing an upgrade but reusing something of the old system perform the series of flushes to clean it out.

Here's the color of some of the flush I got out (and yes, the flush is clear in color) and remember, this is just from the smallish rear condenser.
