Just pulled the A/C compressor out, going to try and find a new one to put in there, and paint those brackets and air cleaner cover sooner or later. Took a bunch of photo's too, will post later this evening.

My emergency brake is leaning against the sensor causing my BRAKE light to always be on, and possibly dragging the e-brake. I found one bolt, but have no idea how to get the others to remove the E-brake pedal. Anyone have any advice on getting that pedal off?

Good luck on the AC Compressor.  I have yet to find a stock one.  Maybe someone on here knows where to get them.

check out NPD, Old Air products, and Ames performance. i remember seeing reman factory A/C compressors in there somewhere.

Really? NAPA shows a price of 331.25 for the whole thing. So it they are 300 cheaper that NAPA then it's only 31.25 from them?
