I am attempting to preserve this vintage Westinghouse Refrigerator. It turns on and compressor is working, but I have a small leak in the freon line above the freezer box, so it does not get cold enough to store anything.

The freon lines (2) are welded into the freezer box on the back top and route to the right side and down. Unsure how to get to these lines without bending them while attempting to remove the freezer box. Any ideas on how to repair the freon lines? I have included several photos of the refrigerator, serial and model plate, including the problem area I mentioned showing the lines.
