      the seats had to be taken out to remove the paneling and molding in order to run the air lines out of the car and the power from the front as well as the wires to send the information to the display and for the switch box.

      There are MUCH easier ways to accomplish that (like through the middle of the car through the center console and then under the carpet and back seat. And please tell me you're running a good size power wire (like, at least 8g) from the batter to the back for the compressor(s)?

      yes i'm running the proper gauge wire for the compressor. instead of running ithe power wire from the battery and have unnecessary wires attached to the battery, i connected the power wire to the bus bar under the dash where the whole car is getting its power from, then fused it right after.
      i know that there are easier ways to install this without taking all of these things out and apart, but my whole idea going into this project was to make it clean and run the electrical in the same bundles of wire that the car was made with. i wanted this to be an extremely clean set up, as it is my daily driver. that is why it is taking me longer to complete then other people.
      i will post pictures of the final product. and the only thing that is going to be visible is the tank in the trunk and the switchbox up front.

      Why the mounts? Did the mason techs not come with them? Or did you just buy bags and put them over shocks yourself?

      yeah the mounts came from mason tech with the shocks and struts. the rear cnc aluminum mounts came with the bags already attached.

      The mounts came with them? Quality
      How do you plan on placing the management? Spare wheel well?
      What is it that you are shaving down for the rears though?

      these rubber bump stops, i guess you can call them, i made for the front, because i wanted something with more surface area for the bag to push the car up and down against so it wouldnt break or split. this was a kit i found online. there are two parts and when mixed together, poured into a mold, and let cure for 24 hours or so becomes very hard rubber. perfect for what i wanted it for.
      i'm mounting the compressor on its side inside the rear left wheel well in the trunk. there is surprisingly quite a bit of room there. as for the valves and manifold i'm making they are going in the compartment that covers the left rear wheel well. it has a small compartment to store stuff so thats where i'll be putting that stuff. i removed the floor of that compartment so that the compressor can cool down.
      as for the rear thing i'm shaving down, thats a hockey puck. that is going on top of the bag and the car to prevent metal on metal contact.
