Are there any Air Conditioner Improvement Mods?

Just got my AC competely charged.
Works OK except in the Hot Sun.
Then takes a while to cool down.
Not very well at Idle.

My Dad's 94 Roadmaster seems to be cooler and quicker.

Was wondering if there were any tricks to improve AC performance?

This thread has been a life saver! Thank you all for your valuable input! I finished my putting my AC system together today. I've never done any kind of AC work short of buying a can with the hose and filling the system. I replaced the compressor(it seized), accumulator, orifice, and o-rings. I also flushed the whole system and vacuumed it with a vacuum pump and manifold gauges from HF as per recommended in this thread. I'm glad I went the route of buying my own AC tools since now I can do this on any car and save hundreds by not taking it to a shop to do something that was so easy to do. Took the car out for a drive and the AC vent temp dropped to 36 degrees!! I'm good with that!
