Replace or Flush my A/C Condenser?

Just took my 01 SH to Honda and had them look at my A/C system. I had the compressor removed a few years ago because it was toast and now I would like to get my A/C back up and running. So there is no compressor of fluid in the system and it is also missing the discharge hose. Honda told me that I would also have to replace the condenser because it has been exposed to the elements. This makes sense to me but can I get away with mot doing it or is that a really bad idea? Could I just flush it out or should I just replace it. I can do it myself for pretty cheap, I just don't want to if I don't have to.

Should replace it, condenser is like 60 bucks and will save you loads of problems with your a/c later that would probably cost an arm and 2 legs.

Sorry to post a useless comment but I keep getting the below message when clicking on certain threads. I'll post something useful later.
