The condensor goes in front of the radiator, you will have to remove your hood latch mechanism temp to install this and possibly the grill, make sure the lines and fittings are sealed from dirt and the air, electrical tape will work temp for this if it doesn't have plastic plugs in them, The receiver dehydrator is between the condensor coils and the expansion valve which is usually by the firewall, and the evaporator unit will go under the dash, I would lay the pieces on the floor in a circle how they will hook up, the compressor will have one fitting going to the evaporator and they other fitting going to the condensor coils, they should be different sizes, the high pressure side lines are smaller dia than the low pressure side lines and the fittings follow this also. Once it is assembled in the car completely, it will have to be vacuumed down to remove any air and moisture befor freon is added, I'm assuming this is a add-on type a/c, when you get it all done, remember this will add a lot of heated air in front of the radiator, if you have cooling issues now they will be worse, you may have to get a fan with more blades or a flex fan, a bigger radiator or a radiator with more rows. Good Luck.

Just think as the condensor as the radiator for the ac and yes it goes in front of your radiator.You might get away with just taking off the hood latch to get it in there.The drier goes under the hood i believe depending how long the hoses are for the kit.If your having problems call classic auto air they are helpful.
