      Hey everyone, I decided to void my extended warranty even more by going air, 2010 VW Golf TDi 4dr, Revo V.1, 18x8 VMR VB3 wrapped with toyo proxes 1's

      Before:


      After:


      Plans:

      Airlift XL's all around, V2 management, quick disconnect /removable tanks(for easy relocation),,......plus .the usual or unusual

      Trunk Prep:

      Digital Camo wrapped factory flooring



      Under the factory flooring is 1" pressed board wrapped in leather with flush mount ring



      Under the 1" pressed board is the 2x4 frame with pressed board mounts for components, retaining the spare, will be spraying frame so it doesn't look so ghetto




      Buffer bottle/ Inline cooling tank / portable filler bottle


      Found my Netting a decided to tak a shoot with some random stuff




      5 gal box I started and realized I needed the bottle to finish...



      Should get everything in the mail this week, and install/build party hopefully the following weekend

      more pics to come....

      I believe the bomb is being used as a buffer tank, that say the air can cool down before heading to the main tank, kind of like a big water trap

      yes i am active duty, and my trunk is a tribute to all that have served and are currently serving their country.

      The tank is going to be used as an in line buffer tank/ portable tank in case i need to air up a tire for some one or something else.

      I forgot how frustrating getting the front struts out and back in...got one in but gonna wait until tomorrow to finish, have plans today but should be finished this weekend

      the plumbing for the buffer tank

      Started on the wireing harness





      And the sweet v2 controller nicely tucked in the center console


      Spinde spreader i made from a 3/4" allen key, worked amazing


      For the air lines I followed the same path as the harness under the splash guards next to brake and fuel lines, quite easy to take out and replace if you get a hole in your line

      The rear steup




      the trunk

      the little man keepin eye on the tank for me


      late night shot after finishing, will take more pics today when its light out
