      just the basic manual setup, nothing to fancy but just enough to get the job done.

      Good choice . That's really all you need for a manual setup, it's exactly what I ran. I played with it a lot for the first week then realized what a PITA it is to adjust so I'd only air out when I really wanted to.

      haha, thats nice and its a coincidence that once me and my dad where doing what little of electrical that had to be done, my car wouldnt start either. We thought we tripped a fuse which we did, so a trip to the store and wendys we got fuses, and came back replaced them but it still wasnt starting, nto even turning over, after like 40 mins we got it, turns out when i was over there i must have knocked a fuss out, which i didnt think i did,. i one on the label with the !surrounded by like a gear, lol. important.

      so far, the teflon tape has been the thing that pissed me off the most haha. and finally you guys asked for it!! PIcTUREs, just so backround of what i missed while the cpu was away. got everything in, bags and all. was so super excited!! made some mistakes and stuff but nothing that cant be fixed and redone, so no worries, just so glad its almost here. **bags wont go in until saturday, i know i said monday but my dads plans changed *** but that gave me time to finish the lines, i decided to mount the switches elsewhere then orig planned as you will see, and my mess going to finish cleaning the rest tomorrow and fiddle with the trunk as im not 100% satisfied with the outcome. So here you guys go....

      bags and rs' go together like pb&j


      gotta give props

      starting the teardown which was fun


      it snowed on me, but that didnt stop for me to start the trunk!



      got the tank in, but there was issues with mounting it because i couldnt access the bottom holes so i had to custom fab up a mount for them, i was quite pleased with me work


      figuring out my line situation



      now getting into the interior, was able to run it under the carpet easier then i thought!




      im doing 20 pics segments

      Are you running all of your air lines under the carpet through the cab and not underneath the car?

      Looks like good work.

      my original plan to put the switches

      labeled each line so there was no confusion


      gauges hooked up

      my mess

      the plan, the general look and setup

      coming from the back to under the carpet to the switches


      from trunk

      left, right, left, right, left

      original noob plan for the pressure switch

      coupler i thought i could figure out how to use

      taking some shape

      comp and other final things came in so i got my model

      watertrap w/ model

      yessir, they are all under the carpet, the only lines outside the car are from the rear bags which come out there the spare well!

      had time to re thought it and made a trip to the hardware store, about the 11th time this week

      with comp

      pressure switch

      in the trunk general mock up, didnt look the way i imagined it but its good enough

      shinin brite

      my setup i bought which i didnt like, eventually is replaced


      the electical, sparks are flyin


      because racekor gauges

      this was yesterday, when my plans changed for the good, since i wasnt able to fit it all behind where it was going to go i had to redo it. so, after taking the kick panel off and seeing the miles of room, i made me move with the change, the mess i was looking at


      since i work with aquariums all the time, im aware that pumps need to be making little to no contact with anything hard, and the bushings it came with were a P I T A, so i fabbed this up

      teflon taped and tightened down

      said **** it and just bought an air hose with everything i needed already on it, im lazzzyyy

      oh yea

      saw this and knew everything was going to be OK

      in the process of removing the old and running the new, sooo much cleaner and easier to deal with

      from the bottom

      new general placement more the switches, like the video ecs made


      do any of you guys know the PO of your car, well i do haha



      ** those were all the pics i got yesterday, i will get some more tomorrow to show you guys the final look of everything, it was just so nice, like 60 degrees here yesterday so i wanted to get the work done and not be a photographer *** and i failed at getting pics but all the airline is run out to all four wheels, which wasnt that bad!
      overall im really happy so far with the way everything has gone, with the new place for the switches all the hassle i had is gone. bags will be on the saturday hopefully .... although i got some tonight, still not 100% on the trunk, so hold your critisim





      and some the interior back in you cant see any lines


      the hole i cut for the switches, but broke it anyway, so it will be replaced, no worries and the switches you can see chillin out

      still have to mount mount the gauges, right now they are just sitting in there


      and for those who know about it i put my fancy bumper back on
