Heres last nites small progress....another couple runs to hardware stores really takes time out of your day and 9pm comes fast (my quit time)

Although this is an easier than normal air system to install compared to a mini truck or even my Hoe.....it isnt car specific and needs mods to make it work.  Its half bolt up and half home-made and there is no instructions you just have to make it happen.

These bolts get welded from the backside to give me some studs for the new strut.

What is going on here is i had to grind this nut down to fit inside this sleave..then weld it in. Basicly gives me some threads for the air strut to screw into. The sleeve then drops into the spot where the stock strut used to go.

Posted Image

ya i know i need the oxygen kit for my MIG....i didnt realize the slag was so messy.  Anyone who spends cash on a new MIG especially if its your first one, just drop the cash the first time on one with the bottle.  My welds are good at least (ill find out i guess  :P )

Picked up these rubber dampners from the "HELP!" section of the local AutoZone...these REALLY help with the vibrations and shock you feel when pounding switches and everyday driving.  I did this last time and man.......the ride really DOESNT suck like people think (for cans anyway)

Heres last nites small progress....time for some plumbing.  Plug and Play my AZZZZ....heres what the pile looks like before i started configuring the valves. 

Posted Image

This is one SICK piece here, i cant wait to hook it up.  All digital now plus i can still keep my oldschool switchbox on the side if i want for "play time"  :)

Posted Image

These things can be configured in many ways to get it to fit.  Anyone remember the "Rubiks Snake?  Its almost like that till you find the way they will go then tighten them up.

Posted Image

I put a set at each strut because its faster that way then if i put them all at the tank.

Yes, ill probably do a half wall with 2 18's or 4 15's and at least 4 bd1500's....but i still need the old box in there due to the fact it still isolates my trunk from the cabin.  What i decided to do was to put the air tank and pump inside the box and when its all said and done there will be some sort of a cover with a small window so you can look in and see the chrome tank.  I got other plans for the nitrogen tank that will come later. Im also thinking at least 4 batterys right in front of the box since there will be room there.  Dont mind the uglyness....its still under construction!!!

Ok i went shopping for a few items before i started this morning...here is what i picked up.

Posted Image

A nice set of 7,000K HID's and a new set of housings for them to go in.  I like them alot to bad the housings are for a 99 i think because it doesnt fit.....my luck.  I guess ill take care of it monday.

Posted Image

I already had a spare Nitrogen tank so i just had to go snatch up a regulator and yet MORE plumbing for it to work.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Now its time for the fun stuff....wiring up the Valves to the switches.  These look all premade ya, but they were all wired up by hand and put together.
