Question headed to boneyard

Just called about an A/C for the Kick. Manager sez 150 for everything. Any tips on installation hangups? I've done a lot of AC work in the past so the basics should be easy i.e. flush, oil, new dryer, check compressor and clutch PRIOR to bolting on. Donor is a '96 Kick 1.6, 2WD. My gem is a '98 Kick, 4X4, 4dr, 1.6, 16 v., 5 speed.

Also, different PS/AC belt and adjustment. You may need the '96 heater control panel AC switch if you don't have one (probably don't). When at the JY always get more than you think you need, especially fasteners.

Regarding heater controls, I found out that a '98 Geo Metro control panel is the same as a '97 Tracker.

EDIT: trim panel is different although.

only one,
dont ever force the clutch on the compressor
that is never hot wire, it, let the A/C AMP LOGIC protect the system.
hi/lo switch do not bypass that either.
that is it,
