      Oh ****, pegboard! That is seriously a perfect idea. I have my air gauges in the glovebox and the controller is tucked under the armrest most of the time. You'd never know it was a bagged car looking at the interior.

      haha its not really as bad as it looks in the pic.

      its the damn wiring harnesses for the ridepro e3, theyre like 15ft long which is pretty unnecessary.

      Wow, 2 compressors for 1 3 gallon tank? Seems a little over kill....or is it just because you use the switches so much it fills faster this way?

      Im about to redo my trunk....this 5 gallon tank is retarded big. Time to downsize to 1 or 2 3 gallon tanks. Ive thought about the 5 gallon skinny tank but dunno if it would fit in my car

      I don't like listening to the compressors. 2 400s and a 3 gallon, it fills from 110-145 in 20-25 seconds.

      why would you buy a new car right after you put the new Farmas on?

      because i only put the farmas on so i wouldnt be on RC's for h2o. im waiting for a phone call. if its bad news, the mk4 is going and the mk5 will be my only car (until i get married) for a while (unless my girlfriend has something to do with it). if its good news... woull just have to wait and see.

      some of these setups are great! im only asking for hidden stuff because it will be my daily and i absolutely need full use of my trunk. i carry around tools, a jack, spare clothes, a soccer ball or two and plenty of other stuff. so that dual 400 + 3 gallon tank looks to be the best bet for me. especially because im used to driving retarded low with my car, i dont see me making full use of the switches unless its absolutely necessary.
