    What's happenin' Garrett?
    If I remember correctly, the way the serpentine system works on f-cars is that the a/c compressor has its own belt. An easy removal would b to cut the a/c belt out (or remove the larger accessory belt first, to be neat & not ghetto), then unbolt the compressor itself and disconnect all the hoses (remember all of the a/c refrigerant is under high pressure, so take caution!). Everything after that should be self explanitory. Though I don't know how long the process would take? Proficient with a wrench - a day maybe? anyone else done this before?

    havn't mounted them yet, gonna bead blast them first... I don't know exactly where the port to discharge/recharge the a/c system is. (techniclly a pro shop should do this, it's illegal to release refigerant into the atmosphere) But release the pressure FIRST. then u can begin removing the compressor,etc. and such.
