The amount of refrigerant needed is a calculation; just adding is NOT the correct method. At a given ambient temperature, you need to achieve a pressure. Measurements are to be made at both low and high pressure sides of the system. From these readings, a calculation can be made about refrigerant quantity.
If you are opening the system, you were planning to also replace the receiver/dryer, correct? It also needs the oil in it measured and incorporated into the amount of oil (in %) that would need to be added. FAILURE to address these and other issues will guarantee premature system failure and likely compressor damage.
Take this job to a qualified shop.
