      I'm trying not to! I'm hoping to get the inside of the trunk done tomorrow, but i don't know if I will be able to...work has delayed me so much. Hopefully I'll have the actualy trunk lid done as soon as possible, too. It's so addicting..I have a feeling this is going to be another build like my S4..we'll see where it takes me! But I'm excited....everyday I walk out to my car, I seem to like it more and more.

      and just a quick shot from the other night..i like my dirty girls, but a cleaning once in a while is good, too

      i was up until 3 in the morning last night finishing up the inside of trunk..finally got everything like 99% the way i wanted it..i just have to do some cleaning up, but everything is in place..i took pics of the whole thing - i'll post them up when i get home tonight.

      as for the outside, i'm going to be held back a few days because i ordered a new lip to mold in, but it looks like they are on backorder or something..the trunk is already shaved, just waiting for the lip to come in..

      don't know if i've mentioned the air setup but basically airlift struts and bags front and rear, their digital kit basically.. and a single vivair compressor...

      and a teaser to hold up until i post the rest of the pictures tonight

      You notice any clearance/rubbing issues with the rear bags? I hear the airlift rears can do this. Did you have to completely shave off the rear nipple?

      a bit of rubbing in the rears actually..seems to be kind of common with airlift rears..i just got back from vacation not too long ago, so the car has been mainly sitting..now that i'm back i have to address this issue asap! A little bit of shaving in the rear should do the trick..i'll see if i can tackle that this weekend..


      so, is there any way to change the title of this thread and make it my build thread or something like that? anyways...here are the pictures from the build on the trunk (inside)..pictures are kind of crappy, it was mad dark out and both my work lights burned out on me at the end, so i was left with nothing but the garage lighting...blehhhh

      yes sir, 5 gal. everything is secured down into a metal plate, that is then secured to the floor of the trunk...i'll try to get some pictures this week of the actual spot where it got secured down to, and give you a better idea..

      update: while working on the trunk lid today, snapped a quick pic for you...still have to get one of the wheel fitment...



      sorry, it's kind of hard to tell..but there is a thick metal plate, like almost 1/4'" thick...the compressor and tank are screwed down to that plate which is then secured down to the trunk floor...you can see just a little corner of the plate where i lifted the carpet...


      and i started working on the trunk lid today...will post the rest of the pictures tomorrow morning..
