Default KA swap + A/C install

A/C help. Dropping a KA into an 85 ST. Wanting A/C with the new build. How much of a pain in the ass is the A/C system install if the truck didn't have it installed as an option when it was new?? Right now she's stripped down to the bone. No interior at all & the motor isn't in yet either. So KA compressor + 720 hardware......Can it be done??
