Matt if you want to drive a little north for a day you're welcome to come up and knock this out at my house. Nothing special, other than a garage with heat, tools, air, drill press, welder... will be around all weekend, give me a call if you want.

Thanks for the offer Tim, and I know others have offered as well. I'm not really complaining about what I've got, I'm making it work, the point is that I am really excited to get a house with a garage. The problem with driving anywhere is that that takes up a significant portion of the very little time I have at the present to get this done. If I had more time to be working on it I'd probably take more people up on the offer. Or I'd drive the 1/2 hour to my parents house where I have total familiarity and pretty much unlimited access to my dad's tools I hate being a mooch though too, and I hate imposing on people. I'm figuring out a way to "get 'er done!"

Speaking of being short on time, this weekend is a busy one for me, so I don't think any work is going to get done until Monday night

Default Coming together...

Made a little progress today...

-Finished drilling holes in my little support brackets for my air manifold, then cleaned them up with the Dremel and gave them a coat of primer and flat black.

-Added a couple oz. of compressor oil to the compressor, so it's good to go for a few test runs.

-Gave it a run test - found out my leader hose was installed backwards (don't know why I thought I had it on right - there's no arrow on the check valve in my defense though). Flipped that around and it seems to be pretty happy just plugging along.

-Bolted up my air manifold to the fender using the little brackets - oh yeah had a $1.58 parts run to Ace Hardware. This thing sits really close to the hood support rod. I knew that was going to be the case, but I got it just in the perfect spot. It's not so much a problem with my manifold but more with the pressure gauge and pressure switch, I had to be a little careful where I put those. I had to get a little creative with the brackets as well because of the VSV that one bracket has to share mounting points with.

-Took some measurements for the last item - mounting the filter/coalescer. Going to pick up some stuff tomorrow to get that a little closer. Hopefully I'm going to get my clip-on air chuck tomorrow or Tuesday, so I can get this thing wrapped up! Still have a little electrical to do, been waiting on my 90/120 pressure switch from 4WheelParts (going to return the 110/145). They said it was going to be here a week ago Monday, then this past Thursday, then tomorrow Good thing I'm not quite ready for it yet.

-Still have to get my relay bolted on somewhere and wired in.

My air chuck came in today. But then I stopped at Ace (one that's close to my work vs. the one that's close to where I live where I bought my other stuff) and saw they had one too

Also made a $57.18 shopping trip to Ace to pick up the (hopefully) last of the parts I need.
-3 x 1/4" NPT hex head plugs
-3/8" x 1/4" reducing coupling
-3/8" short nipple
-2 x 3/8" 90 degree elbows
-2 x 3/8" x 3" nipples
-3/8" x 1 1/2" nipple
-1/4" short nipple
-1/4" x 1/8" reducing coupling

Total: $361.89

Ouch.

Just razzing you Matt. It's another $36 for the hose and chuck anyway. Keep the picture coming.

That's the thing. All the little crap adds up. The $50 I spent today are fittings that, combined, fit in one hand. Oy
