I installed a Vintage Air system in my car. It has to be somewhat similar. I found the install fairly easy, but I play with cars a lot and I installed anther V/A kit on my 67 C10 back in 2006 and it still blows ice cold, so I kinda knew what to look out for the 2nd time.
A couple things to do/watch out for:
Pre fit everything loosely. It will take longer, but ensure you don't have any major mistakes.
The A/C lines MUST all have an O-ring installed on them. AND it MUST be lubricated (should have come with kit). If for any reason you install an O-ring, tighten the line, but messed up somewhere and have to undo that connection, DO NOT REUSE that O-ring. Toss it and get another. They're cheap and my V/A kit came with a couple extra of each size (parts stores have them too.)
I would have a shop evacuate and charge the system (I installed mine, then had a shop charge it, was around $110 for me.) The kit should have information on compressor and system for the shop to use (pounds of refrigerant and whether or not your compressor was pre-oiled.)
There are plenty of people here to help if you get stuck! Good luck with your install!
