Definitely do not connect the 2 separate AC pipes under the passenger seat that run to the rear. I did this and could have caused a lot of damage had I not corrected my mistake - seemingly they are different pressure pipes? 

They need to be capped off separately.

One of my posts from about 18-24 months ago has some more detail and pics if needed.

Just remember when you go for a re-gas that the car need less 90 instead of 140?

Thanks, just messaged him now to find out. it has been 4 days and the a/c is working fine still. 

If he has connected them I will get this rectified and get the pipes blocked asap. 

thinking to just order new pipes from toyota and just have it all working properly.

yes for sure I will. If you go on this link you can see the guy who is sort of mentoring me with the dos and donts. He did the trip last year and he is doing it this year too but he is returning via china so it really will be something else.
