1First,i would try to hire a body shop helper ,who knows how to assemly and desassemly the dash board,second if the helper can do it for less then 200 dollars including the core,which cost 50 to 60 dollars at the auto parts,I would let him do it.2 if 250 dollars is to much and the cost is not worth compared to the value of the car,I would Bridge the coolant in and out ports at the firewall,it would only cost 10 dollars and a small pipe of 6 to 7 inches will do cancel it then use a small portable heater. Now if the core is not leaking to much and the heating is important,take all the coolant out and replace it with water,this will allow the heater to work without the nasty smell of coolant.And if it is important to have he heater working and you have the time i woul assume it will take you one day or less depending on the tools and the presence of the new core:take the under column steering cover left and right,the radio cover and dials screw out the front let and right panels,ashtray and you will have a good view of the task from there under the dash,open the hood and desconect the battery,desconect the heater core clamps at the fire wall,the evaporator lines and plug them and take the screws that attach the heate core ./evaporator at the firewal.the rest wil be just minor screws under the dash ,heater cover screws,vacumhose and pull the heater out of the housuing replace it and do everystep backward .good luck.
