Air Condition

I found a gold mine. Went to a yard sale over the weekend the advertised a heavy duty chevy axle...axle was crap so I passed it up.....buuuutt I aquired an entire unopened case or R-12 refrigerant, 12oz cans. Only $1 dollar mind you.
Now the question....if I get all the right tools is servicing the A/C a job someone can actually do themselves. The shop wants a fortune and won't use my own R12...against EPA regs and they want almost $200. Is there anything special I need to know before starting. Can anyone help me here?

Re: Air Condition

You need a set of manifold gauages and some way of recovering the r12 you take out if you take any out.
