Blunt object + Condensor = hole, should I flush?

Year: 1991
Make: Acura
Model: NSX
Refrigerant Type: R12

My brother came home one day to find that some metal object had punctured a hole in his left condensor in his 91 NSX. His AC has stopped working ever since, because all the R12 (I think, considering it's a 91) leaked out. This was unfortunate because he had just paid about 1400 to get his evaporator replaced. The bastard evaporators on the NSX could only be removed after you take out the steering column and the whole dash board :shock:

Anyways, his system has been left open with the puncture wound, so I'm pretty sure his receiver drier is shot. Besides for replacing the reciever and pulling a vacuum, do you think a flush is necessary? The compressor is mounted in the rear, whereas all the other stuff is mounted in the front of the car, so the lines are loooooong.

Btw, will a dual-condensor setup really lend itself to super cold temperatures?
