BeeUU- Thanks

UPDATE!-Today I fixed the A/C. Previous owner said he priced a new hose on the internet for $110 and called around town and found a place to do it for $50, I also checked Autozone and it was special order for $234. I checked around today and found a place that would do it for $45 BUT it wouldn't be ready today. So I checked around and couldn't find anyone. Decided to check an old autoparts store I worked at when I was a kid. A friend from high school who I got into auto parts when we were kids now works there so we were able to make a hose. Total price: $3.82!! I also had to get a retrofit kit to switch it over to R134 so total cost to get A/C charged and going was $45 PLUS I have mucho refridgerant left I can add a little to the Metro. I'm a happy camper as now my wife will ride in the car. Still need to change those rear bearings, they are driving me nuts!!

Thanks to OdieTurbo on checking a CarFax I don't feel quite as bad about tearing up a survivor. The CarFax came up with a minor accident thought I can't find anything on the car that tells me it was ever in an accident. It does need paint as it is a little worn.

Got the noise fixed today. It had a horrible noise at speed. I had a hunch it was a rear wheel bearing and I was right. It was the right rear bearings. Swapped those and the races out and it's a quiet ride now (except for the diesel noise ) I'm at 315 miles on my first tank or diesel and it's still above half. I'll be waiting for my Frybrid system for probably at least another month.
