Once you have everything together take it back to the shop and have the system pumped down and recharged and checked for leaks....
Ha well that wasn't the answer I was looking for lOL...

I'm ASE certified in A/C....but they don't train you how to do it with out the machine hahaha

I can charge it myself with out a machine.

Hmm... after the new compressor/ drier and inline orifice tube filter I think I will have to make a stop at your house

I would discharge/vent the A/C system to atmosphere. The refrigerant evaporates as soon it is released. Venting the R134a to atmosphere from one car isn't going to destroy the ozone layer. I know it'* against the law.

There are only two ways to do it. Either vent it to atmosphere or recover it. Simple as that. One is technically illegal.

Also alot of auto salvage yards do freon recovery and might do yours for a little coin cuz they do sell the refrigerant. Atleast the few I goto do..
