Default Switching from R-12 to R-134a: Just need the adapters right?

Well..not JUST the adapters...but Right now, I have completely replaced all my o-rings with the Saturn OEM parts (got them FROM saturn)
I HAD a full charge of R12 in there, and it was nice and cold..but it leaked out because my high/low side valve's leak. SO, since I can't get anymore R12..I just need to get those adapter fitting thingies right, and put them on...vacuum it down to suction, and then add R-134a, right?
AmazingHL, isn't that what you did? Easy like that?

I actually changed the both hoses to R134a style. Everything bolted up fine.

Well, you did that instead of changing the valve's...but since my hoses are good, and I feel comfortable doing the valves, it's just that easy right?

follow the directions on the retrofit box.

You probably need to vacuum the system and do some other stuff too.

Just b/c the r12 leaked out doesn't mean something else didn't leak in... like water.
