After I got my car I had a local shop (we are limited up here in the GA mountains to billy bob) work on my air.  The recharged the R134 and put in a new expansion valve.  it worked ok for the 15 min ride home then one of the long lines sprung a leak in one of the long hoses from the firewall.  I have not driven it much since then as I have been working on the interior and other parts.  But later this week I am bringing it to a real shop, classic car restoration shop to have the windshield and back glass replaced ( I did the doors and 1/4 windows).  I want them to look at the A/C but I am also thinking of a bit of an upgrade.  Has anyone used this from NPD (below link)?   Wondering what else I would need to have this kit installed (yeah, the two long hoses needless to say) but is there a lot of other work that needs to happen to use this upgrade?   At $500 plus the two other hoses wonder if I can get into it with labor for about 1K total??

I dont have any direct experience with them, but they are great compressors. I have a few friends that run them on different vehicles. I have no idea how the bracketry in the kit will fit though.

Here is a great working kit and a good bang for your buck. I have used 2 of these kits and pleased with them. https://www.originalair.com/71-73-ford-mustang-engine-compartment-upgrade-v-8-134a-w-adapter-brackets

looking back at this thread as I just picked up my car from a shop that did the front and rear window replacement.  Drove an hour in the heat so I really want to get the a/c working.  Is this a kit I can bolt in myself then have a shop to the charging, etc.?  Looks like this kit replaces everything from the expansion valve foward.
