Default A/c condenser replacement

I recently purchased a Samurai A/C Donor kit to add A/C to my 1990 Samurai. The Condenser is 1990 era R12. The fan and its frame are held to the condenser frame via 4 bolts. I removed it with no problem. The left and right mount brackets appear to be spot welded to the condenser frame??? Does the condenser come out of its frame? If I opt to replace the condenser with new, how are the mount brackets removed? I see no new direct plug and play replacement condensers with the side brackets included. Any one an answer? THANKS!

I answered my own question! After more study I found 4 screw (2 ea side) that hold the side brackets onto the condenser coil. I had to soak the threads in Kroil (aviation rust penetrant) and shock the screw heads in a ccw direction with a small sharp pointed chisel and a small hammer to get them the break loose. I had to carefully pry the side brackets open a bit so they would slide off to the outside. In the end, my local radiator/condenser shop convinced me to clean the condenser externally with a good degreaser and then internally with AC flush. I also cleaned the side brackets. I put a light coat of black paint on the condenser coils and heavy coat on the side brackets. It looks like new externally. Next I will flush the condenser internally with the AC flush. Looks like I will be able to save this condenser!
