Save URL screen to PDF (applescript?)

I have a need for saving a URL to a PDF, and grabbing it into a container field. I am dealing with a mac only environment so I was thinking applescript might be my best bet.

 

Unfortunately, my applescript is pretty rusty and google didn't turn up much I could understand.

 

I did however use this automator package:

http://scott.j38.net/interactive/url2pdf/

to create an automator that saves a PDF to a specific directory.

 

I can get the above to work when I manually specify a URL in the "Get Specified URLs" automator block, then click run for the app to run.

 

Can anyone assist me in finding the right way to pass this automator "app" a URL, and telling it to run in the background so it saves the PDF in the app-specified directory?

 

Or have you done this a better/easier way?
