Default Hole in AC Line

Hey guys,
Well about 3 months ago when I did my fmic install i used the wrong hose clamp on the hose that connects the metal tube to the silicon one on the fmic near the battery.
The hose clamp put a hole in my ac line and everything leaked out all over the place when i turned on the AC.
How can I get this fixed?
The car is stage 3 so I would rather not take it to the dealer.

Look in the phone book for an automotive AC repair place. I had one of my lines welded and the system recharged after this happened to me. I saved some $$$ by removing the line and re-installing it after it was repaired, and then let the shop re-fill the system.

just don't leave the system open like that for very long - dirt and moisture can do bad things to the system...

Yeah...I timed my repair so that the whole thing got done in one day, and I've had no problems since.
