Confirm this.  Hoses should be O K ( see note below ) but new O'rings ( generally light green, Viton material ) will need to go on all end connections.  The last component is the T X valve on the engine side of the firewall.  All under dash items are metallic  Be aware also that there is a vacuum controlled tap in the inlet heater hose.  It is actuated from inside and will restrict the hot water flow to the heater core when the A / C is turned on.    You will see all this in a vacuum schematic diagram.  Worth a look before you start.

I am in Australia and regs require flexible lines with nylon tube to avoid permeation of gas through old style rubber hoses.  You may want to check this out with an A / C installation service agent so you don't have to do it twice. Dig out some Youtube videos on the procedure to run a full vacuum test before you try to re - gas it.  Mine looked all good but the T X valve was jammed closed.
Have fun.
