    That's Cool on the repair. No idea what sort of heat a southern summer would bring but low 80's with yesterday's humidity was absurd here. I started weeding my garden early in the day and was soaked with sweat to where it was pouring into my eyes in a few feet. Decided the weeding could wait and retired to garage projects where it was naturally much cooler.

    A southern summer feels like it did here all last week, mid 90's and anywhere from 60-95% humidity.

    For those of you going to Monster Mopar Weekend - Bob from Big 3 Racing will have his turbo Gen III HEMI out. The build is a beautiful fox body Mustang, the other f-body. In the attached picture you can see Rick's monster Duster up on the lift.

    If you see any of the team from B3R go talk with them - they are a great team with an unbelievable depth of automotive knowledge. Tell them HEY for me, they will get a kick out of it.

    I know the feeling. Don't want fall yet because the summer is passing WAY too fast but (and after fall comes winter, ick), right now it's 86 degrees and 78% humidity here with hazy sunshine. Just a tad muggy. It'd be a good test of the Aspen's cooling and A/C systems though I suppose.

    I STILL need to do the AC lines on the Dodge. Every time I plan to do it there is a doctors appointment, tests, etc...

    I'm thinking I should take the lines off just to protect the car. With the new rubber lines I could install them then take the car in. Or should I let them do the lines?

    Of all the things I've done with cars I've never once touched anything related to AC.

    If you're not comfortable with A/C work, it'd probably be best to have the shop do it all. In the long run, it may be more economical. I've been doing it so long, I sometimes forget that not everyone has OR knows what i'm talking about when explaining things. Well, you know what I mean.

    Seems when trying to about anything, there's always something else that has to come first. At least it seem like that around here! Feels like one step forward, two (or 3 or 4....) steps back a lot of times, doesn't it?

    It's like an IT guy telling me how to do some computer operation and I'm like "HUH?". Not a clue what they said.

    I'm tending to agree with you. I'll take the cover off the front (remember the drier was relocated) and put painters tape around the block on the firewall so they don't scratch the paint removing the hoses.

    One other thing to do is change the drier. The existing drier is for the OEM 1980 AC, I believe I should install a drier compatible with the Gen III HEMI.
