A/C recharge

So my aunts cars AC blows hot air. I went ahead and filled bottle of R134 and as it was filling it started hissing and just smoked from condenser area and had a bit of nasty smell. It looks like condenser has tiny hole in it and just blew out whatever I tried putting in the system.
I went ahead and bought new condenser and vacuum pump and a/c manifold set. I think I should run some dye in the system just to see where it's leaking from. Perhaps there's more leaks. I need to pick up black light and glasses.
Anyone else service a/c themselves.
I thought it'd be quick and easy fill up but turned out otherwise
