      It may not be as extravagant as most, but I think it looks factory, and that is what I was aiming for.

      Yes, thats the stock carpet but I'll add a layer of insulation underneath after to quiet down the compressor even more

      you need to switch these bolts to the other side. right now only the top bolts are holding the head of the compressor onto the motor

      reffering to ^^^ picture
      have you ran the manifold or compressor with it grounded the way it is, i do not believe wood is a sufficient "ground"

      it was just a mock up, he states in his build thread that wiring is next.
      But those compressor bolts should def be switched around or they could also just be replaced with longer bolts and nuts on the other side.

      I love how you were able to utilize the styrofoam on the right side

      How are you running the lines to the bags? Bulkheads?

      no unfortunately it was not enough room to run bulkheads with the spare,so i just feed the line trough original plastic grommets in the floor under the spare tire(work very well,also don't have to drill any hols in the metal)

      correction guys, I just had a second look, I unscrewed that head bolt and confirm there is thread on the other side, it is secured

      Check for a 3rd time.

      I agree there is threads on the other side of the head.(of the bolt) But nothing is supporting the front of the compressor, just the bracket.
