AC lines had a hole in them. Tried restocking the Freon, but to no avail. Local mechanic shop said they could replace the hose, and save me a lot of money. Try as they might, they weren't able to replace the hose due to the fittings. Ended up having to order new hoses from Ford, as well as a new condenser. Cost me wayyyy more than I would have desired, seeing as it's such an old car, but having AC is a must if I ever want to resell the thing for more than scrap metal.

Ford has placed the Aluminum dryer bottle and aluminum line underneath the front passenger side fender, this is a very high corrosion area. The system developed a hole in the crimped connection, this is still a dealer item here and they want $100 just for the aluminum line.
