[Histonet] Formalin fix---then freeze?

Would this method be adequate for lung to perform Sudan-stain on it?
That opens the possibility to store the autopsy-tissue in formalin and do
the staining later.
Has anybody experience with this?

I have been asked an unusual (stupid?) question and hope someone can help.
Is it possible to formalin fix a tissue and then put it in OCT and freeze it
to cut frozen sections?  I know it doesn't make much sense but apparently a
contract we have was worded this way (obviously not proof read by the
pathologist) and now I need to treat the tissue this way if possible.  Help!
