      Not just yet. I have to sell my Mustang prior to being able to afford an Autopilot V2 setup. I have pictures from my previous post...

      I have a pretty good idea how everything is going to fit, I just need the parts to play with it.

      I had my compressors inside for about two years and you'd be really surprised at how noisy it is, still, under the bumper. Frame/body vibrations are really loud. There's definitely some things I can do to quiet it down, just haven't gotten around to it.

      Tips:
      1) There IS a grommet back there to run wires/lines through!
      2) 380s and 444s both fit
      3) this steel is ****ing STRONG better have a nice cutter
      4) you will want to kiss a drill press after using it in comparison to a hand drill

      Good luck!

      After a lot of ideas thrown back and forth between my friends and i that is the way my compressor will be mounted.

      now the fun part comes into play for me

      The R as we know does not come with a spare and well we get ****ed with truck space. if you have a bagged R you know all too well that it takes up even more of the space.

      SO........

      I will be Modifying the hump in the middle which in the R houses EVAP crap. THEN i will be putting a 3 gallon tank the closest to the hatch as possible and the manifold on the opposite side of the hump OR where the CD changer is located and run equal length line to my bulkheads.

      My goal is to use the OEM carpt cover in my car and have it completely hidden.

      Why do you say that it's not THAT quiet? Does it rattle? or just compared to being inside the cabin?

      It's a three gallon tank. I'm still planning on taking pics of the compressor mount, just havent had any reasons to take the bumper back off lately. As for the noise, its still loud inside, but I imagine it's much quiter than if it were in the trunk area. I'm brainstorming ideas to quiet it down, but I'm really not bothered by it as much now that it only cuts on when I want it to.

      ^^^^ thats how mine is, except mine is a few inches back from the center console...its not horrible loud, but along with the hardlines/fittings rattling it is fairly annoying

      pretty easy if you have a dremel to remove the epoxy in the head of the upper bolts.

      just make sure if you do move the bracket, DO NOT move the bracket on the opposite side of the head than it is now because the threaded part is in the casing for the motor not in the head, if u switch the direction of the bolt your head wont be held on by the bolts! other than that just dremel out the epoxy in the bolts and move the brackets!
