"You could always buy a new trunk lip from Russ. Have it welded in and it's fixed for good. Fiberglass will work fine and be invisible to the naked eye. If it's done right with a new gasket it should last your lifetime."
"OK, Here is what happened with my A/C problem. To start, everyone I have discussed this issue with agreed, the system needed around 48oz of 134. A local A/C guy convinced me that my new condenser was plugged up about 3/4 of the way through. I…"
"No I think not. Got 2 estimates so far, $ 6000 to $7000 on one. And $1000 on another.
Besides the trunk lid the drainage track under the trunk seal is rusting, and that's most of the work. The second estimate said he would sandblasted and…"

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…
I got the book to troubleshoot the system. INDISPENSABLE to this effort.
As I do a cursory exam, I see that the AC RECIRC SOLENOID is Cracked (the WHITE one in the engine compartment coming out of the HVAC body with two vacuum hoses on it). I tried to patch it up (cracked all around the base), but it does not look like it will hold.

I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system. I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…
