Ahaha, thanks guys. This car needs some spider caps and beauty rings.

I'm glad it was a recently restored car cause the parts came off sooooooo easy. Anyway I got back onto it today. I wanted to check out what a wire may look like...

Image

Then I got back at it and polished the tank.

Image

I hated the dull flat look...this just looks better.

Image

Then I started plumbing the airlines for good, running electrical and making the Exo unit. I also got a grommet for where all the airline and electrical will pass through.

Image

I'll get this mounted tomorrow night.

Hey all, it's been a crazy week and I've been plugging away, just been stupid busy at work...some updates...

So I got the front all back together and started mounting the air lines to the frame.

Image
Image

I got the back bags in for good and plumbed and mounted.

Image

Had to grab more fittings..needed 90's for the back.

Image
Image

Dropped her top and put some jUnk in her trunk...lol.

Image

I switched the compressor leader hose to the sides instead of the back so it won't burn the top when it folds down. I put the water trap and blow off valve on the back side of the tank. I started wiring the system up as well.

Man you are doing some good work on this car! I like that you are building it where if wanted it could be put back to stock! Keep up the good work and can't wait to see it on the ground!
