Am I Feeling Lucky?(Part II)

Roughly half a can 12 oz. of R12, which leads me to think if it has a leak it is a slow one (I have had the car for a year and a half, first time I touched the A/C). Results below.
Will see how long it lasts, good to know the system is still working. Next time around will probably get a proper service, but I don't really like taking anything to a shop until I have a pretty good idea of what is going on.
What a bunch of pessimists (see prior poll in part I).

@glemon I think your approach is best. Our 924S does seem to very slowly leak refrigerant as well. I put my last can of the old stuff in a couple of years back and it's still doing ok. I converted one of my old Audi's to 134a years ago and it was a PITA and not that great when finished. I have not even looked at the 944 forums to see what guys are doing.
In other news, I did mostly finish the FOES in about two weeks. One week of wrenching split by a weeks wait for a tensioner roller which was not the correct version. I'm not going to write this up, but would be happy to answer questions. I still need to re-tension the A/C Alternator belt, I left it a bit too loose.

@glemon Props for putting proper R12 in it. The hippies can have their carbon-neutral ozone-safe refrigerants that don't work. Nothing better than a shot of R12 for chilling out.

@glemon I refilled the 944 with R134a and it is nowhere near that cold. It works, but not well. Better than no AC at all though.
