Default !@#$%^&* it's the evaperator that was lunched on my air condiitioner

I had the tests done on my AC this AM with the sniffer and it's definately an evaperator. There's no good side to that, other than the place I went is a neat mom's and pop's place, specializing in AC repair. I found akin citizens so they gave me their "best" price of $535 with tax or add $60 to replace the heater core. Two other estimates in the area were over $300 more so I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet with this lowest estimate. I hate driving w/o AC, I guess I'm spoiled. We're already in the mid 80's every day here in Fl.
Two questions, is that a good price? and, should I fork out the additional $60 for the heater core? I plan on keeping my PT Cruiser forever. ptprice

as the entire dash has to come out, I had mine done at the dealer. I believe it cost me close to $800 and, yes, the heater core is right there, have that replaced as well.
