Almost certainly your condenser is full of holes, they are made of paper mache and have very little protection from the front grille. Add som UV dye next time and you'll likely see numerous leaks.

Yep, tried that, bolt torqued down, steering wheel only partially engaged the column and would move a good distance before binding and then trying to turn the rack. Definitely not an area where you'd...

Same reality with any car, you can't draw significant power through existing stock wiring, so yes you'll need to run a line back to the battery. Grounding is a bit different since much of the car is...
