The outer shell is what you see in the picture. The pipe
inside is a standard 3/8" ID steel pipe. Yes it is fascinating
and yes I have no way to track the numbers. :-)
It does however get cold enough from the discharge of an
automotive AC pump to use for keeping my @$$ cool in the car.
:-) Which is what I was looking to do.
My Toyota is over 200K miles and things are starting to fail.
I cant see spending $1000 to repair the air conditioner but I
want to use the rest of the value out of it before I retire it.
Besides I don't want to take out a loan and this is a bad time
to come off of an investment.
This way I can keep driving it until it has a catastrophe.
Or becomes a -- cat - ass - trophy -- :-O
