    You can buy A/C R134a retrofit kit from SOR or MAF but it's expensive.
    But altough you bought retrofit kit, you MUST NOT do that at home for our environment.

    For $150 I bet you can get it refilled with freon and get some change back and it will cool better then the new stuff

    I found a box(10 or so) of 1lb freon at a garage sale.....for $5 :)

    the valley, yeah that one
    Pep boys/etc. will have em. I got a local guy to recover my R12, then I did the retrofit at home and went back for the new refrigerant. here's the good part- he didn't charge me for the R134, because the R12 costs more; he only hit me for $20.00 for the "labor", poke you nose around a couple of the more seedy looking shops around, someone will do it. anything bigger or more complicated, leave it to a real LC mechanic.
