Did a good bit of reading on here and have a general idea of what I want to do. However I have a few questions....
Basically, I want to do hard lines on a simple air setup. From compressor to water trap to tank, then from tank to VU4 manifold, and then from VU4 manifold to bulk heads.
1. Is it OK/smart to run stainless lines with brass compression fittings? I've seen a few set up with this combo and like the way it looks/contrasts. Will the brass ferrule in the fitting stick into the stainless hard line? Also, do I have to worry galvanic corrosion since they are 2 different materials? Or is it better to match the fittings and the lines?
2. Thoughts on Parker brass compression fittings?
3. What type of copper is typically used? Type L, type M, ect?
4. Is the anything special that needs to be done when installing hard lines into PTC fitting (like the lines between the bulkheads and the VU4 and the line from the tank to the VU4)?
I've done a few air ride installs before, but never with hard lines. So I have basic understanding of how everything works, but could use the help with the lines and fittings

Any information on how people do the brass fittings with the stainless? Would using a stainless ferrule in the compression fitting bite into the stainless hard line or would it just cause the fitting to expend and become junk?

Did some copper lines yesterday, on the setup yesterday. Not sure if I'm going to stick with them though. Quick question, for those doing stainless lines (or aluminum?), what fittings have you found are the best? Here's a pic of the copper lines, vibrates against the tank though, so not keeping it.

Hi Guys, amazing hardlines!
Questions for people who using hardlines on your ACCU VU4,
