      They're called bulkhead unions.

      gotta question guys. ive messed with air before but never hardlines. are you guys running push to connect bulk heads for hardlines? ive only used plastic lines before didnt know if hard lines work in push to connect?

      well, actually. I feel like most people (with hardlines) use compression fittings. I used ptc fittings with my old set up, and there are many others who also use them, but compression fittings are just better

      Also more expensive and cleaner looking

      no doubt compressions are cleaner but quick searches on google of bulkheads, all ive seen is ptc bulkheads.

      swagelok or parker fittings. They can get pricey quick.

      Wasnt to bad, basically cut a piece of wood to mount in there and attached the compressor to that and ran wires/lines behind the carpet, i've seen people put em in smaller spaces so air shouldnt be a problem in there, sometimes i leave the door open on hot days...

      Man that must get super hot in that compartment when the compressor is running. That is a 380 correct? That thing runs for such a long time in such a heated environment that isn't going to be ideal for it. I would add 2 computer cooling fans to that area, one to supply air and one to suck hot air out

      can you take pics of how you hung your tank? im thinking of just bolting the tank stray to the tray above. but the tanks i got is bigg. like 8 gallon i think. bitch is heavy.

      its a 400, would like to put a 444 in there, that was my exact plan was to use comp. fans...ive had it like this for a month so far and havent had any problems, ive had this same compressor in my last car too for 2 years prior, would like to upgrade soon, dont know the dimensions of 444 so not sure if itll fit or not

      its bolted strait to the tray along with the v2 manifold and relay, this is a 5gal from bagriders, full spare/tools still in the spare tire compartment too, that was my goal was to not have any air ride stuff on the floor of the trunk

      ^nice, so it didnt pull that tray down any? i plan on doing a fake wall then running air management between the fake wall and seats that way its still accessible if i have any problems. my neccesities are cleanliness,easy accesible spare tire, easy accessbile air management and trunk space.

      Thanks! I agree, however, I was was trying to keep the number of connections (aka potential leaks) to a minumum so I stuck w/ the 3/8" tubing for now.

      Lets see what next season brings.
