      cool. yeah, one of the things thats prone to vibrating is the panels you'll be reinstalling, hence the ensolite or some other type of foam.

      dont think you'll need two batteries for the dual viairs. even the 400s are under the amp draw, unless of course you are keeping the 'system'

      you running dual OB2s?

      are you upgrading your alternator?
      Yup dual OB2's for now, going 4 on the next build

      The alternator was upgraded to a 200A/140Aidle for the dual and i am getting a 250A/175Aidle for the quad system, each pulling 35A should be just fine, might go brackets though and get a 350/250 for safe measure though but it will have to be a custom solution, not bolt on.

      These pics are only 3 of the 5 with the remaining 2 being countersunk into the bottom center cushion. The side ports on either side will be deleted and smoothed over for final paint. How the hardlines will connect all the tanks is still a bit up in the air but will probably be a fairly clean, somewhat complex look.

      Hey - Been a while since my last update. The 5 tanks were finished up last night and, well, words can't really describe how awesome they came out so...





      And this is the center cradle they'll be sitting in that goes between the rear seats

      Amazing job on the tanks!! Who is the artist? My brother has a low rider 78 Monte Carlo that meds some art work on it.

      The pictures do then no justice at all. You really need to see them in person to appreciate the works of art they truly are. They craziest part is the level of detail that was put into them, even on parts of each tank you can't see once installed!

      If you need any custom paint, airbrushing, body work, performance tuning, stereo installation, air ride, whatever in the tri-state area - Phantom Autowerke is the place to go.

      New power wire for the Amps and compressors


      Primer on the custom fab'd a-pillar tweeter pieces to hold JL Audio ZR 1" tweeters


      Primer on the speaker box for the new paint scheme


      Front struts installed


      Rear bags and shocks installed


      Outer body skins on both doors Dynamatted


      Also ordered the Dakota Digital quad display gauge today and will be ordering all the stainless steel fittings and hard lines in the next day or 2.

      And thanks for all the kind words - there's been a lot of hard work on this build so far by a lot of people who really appreciate the praise but nobody is as grateful as I am to them all.

      Just a quick update for today;

      Got the Dakota Digital Odyssey Series II gauge in from http://www.openroadtuning.com along with 5 pressure senders. Since they'll be visible we decided to polish them up.
