A/C Conversion Crisis

Hello all my name is: YellowDog
I have a: 1991 Stealth TT
It has the following issue:

Has anyone done the air conditioner conversion from R12 to R134a? Is there a conversion kit available somewhere? Is it a do it yourself job?

Also, my car is not blowing cold air which means it most likely has a freon leak somewhere. Are there common areas where freon is known to leak? Where should I look first?

You can get the simple conversion kit from autozone but the leak may be hard to find unless you can see the oily residue around the join. I would recommend finding a reputable professional to do the job as DIY on your own car will cost a fortune unless you have access to the tools, UV die, vacuum pump, scales, gauges etc.

You could do it yourself assuming you buy everything but to me its easier to just bring it to a shop and let them put uv dye in it. 1 common place is the firewall. You would have to drain the entire system and then fill it up with r134.
