Heater Core Hell

I had suspicions that my core was going bad but nothing that was too regular to pull the trigger on replacing it. Well, shortly after driving the car to work, a co-worker asked if that was my car leaking. Sure it was. Coolant from the drainage hole under the AC unit. Also, that same day and on a few occasions my windshield would fog up just a little. Well after the drainage hole wouldn’t dry I figured that I would have to face the core sooner or later. Or I could just bypass the problem and wait until I needed heat. But as I take pride in my car’s condition, I figured f’ it. Just do it. Well, after working on this for the past 10 days, an hour here an hour there and a whole weekend, I tackled it. I don’t ever want to do this again. I also added the flow restrictor to the heater hose as it didn’t have that when I replaced those hoses.
