    Quick loss of ac refrigerant with my 1994 rt/10

    Ever touch the compressor while it's running? It's hotter than any exhaust pipe you'll brush against. Statistically, the o-rings at the compressor are the ones most likely to fail due to the heat. May I suggest you replace those (yes, remove the hoses, replace the little green o-rings...

    Looking for part for side windows

    I think I have two, but if I do, I had removed the threads (now a thinner shaft) so it needs fewer revolutions to tighten. The cut end is therefore shiny, not black.
