Default Vintage AC shop referral in los angeles

I have a 66 mustang with a 302 windsor engine that I installed a Vintage frontrunner serpentine system with AC. I had a shop in Bellflower help seal and charge the system (my company has their vehicles serviced here and I thought I would be good but they sucked, they are a Vintage distributor so it should have been good but.....). There was a funky chemical smell that I didn't like and the owner of the shop insisted there wasn't a leak in the system. We drove the car off and on for a few months and then parked it for about a year. Now the AC just blows hot air so I assume that smell was the refrigerant blowing into the car. Can anyone recommend a good shop in the San Gabriel valley of Los Angeles where they know what they are doing? I really love the system and when I put a new intake/carb/Mallory HEI ignition, the car has run flawlessly and starts right up without exception. Really bummed about getting the shaft and want to get my car back in working order now that I have the money to get it fixed (and it has been hot in LA this year).
