I actually tried to source that kit and contacted RHDJapan to see if they could get it for me. I forgot what reason they gave but it was a no go unfortunately - I think it had something to do with it being sold on a core exchange basis only but that was a while back so I could be remembering it wrong. Would have been nice since the kit comes with a new condenser and thermostat switch that are better suited to R134.
Yeah that could very well be the reason for RHDJapan not to source it for you. I also had RHDJapan turned me down years ago, I forgot for what part on top of my head. This goes straight back to what you said earlier and what most of us owners know - finding parts could be very difficult at times and can't just overnight parts from Japan.
Ahh so you were trying to convert to R134a. There is a kit available from, of all places, Midori Seibi. But your method may still be cheaper because this kit is expensive and so is shipping a compressor.
four different compressors and three different sets of AC lines from two different countries to come up with one perfectly working solution for your own car to replace parts that have been out of production for over a decade.
LOL please do share how you got the A/C to work. Luckily mine is working just fine but I heard it is a nightmare to get A/C parts.
