      Ok so bags are here got them on Tuesday, went with manual management ( everyone feel free to rip on me for getting paddle valves) 5 gal tank, viar 444c compressor, airlift fronts, air house 2 rears with dcups, and a smc water trap. The only thing that sucks is that I'm still waiting on my dcups because they had to get shipped directly from dorbitz in Texas, they should be here tommorow or Monday regardless me and a friend are gonna start with the false floor mount the tank and compressor, run the air line, mount gauges, paddles etc. hoping for the whole thing to be said and done on Monday, sorry for the lack of pics my photobucket is being retarded. Will post a lot of pictures though since I don't really see a lot of universal rear and dcups being installed. Please stay tuned the build has just begun

      Glad I got the paddle valves free. I wasn't gonna use them, but then after some thinking, why would I want electronic valves to potentially fail, electronic controller.that can maybe fail, crappy plastic level arms that will break. Run the paddles with two dual needle gauges. The only way it can fail is if some airline comes loose. A lot cheaper if something goes wrong as well. I'm still planning on upgrading the management next spring, but we'll see

      Yup that's what I got the dual gauges, and exactly I'd rather change an airline than have to trouble shoot electric bs, ill probably switch I analog in the future but this is gonna be just fine for now
