Hello all,
I am building my first air'd project. Its a C5 A6 Avant and I am waiting for my complete bagyard setup to arrive (hopfully next week). So far I gathered most of the management and picked up 3 boxes full of goods today.


Goods


and complete control arm 12 piece kit to keep things tight.


Now planning the layout, and here is where I have first problem. I want to keep my cargo space stealth but with the size of the tank I got and the way that spacesaver pan is made on my car it will be hard to do. as you can see

OK so I am almost done with the floor
I just gotta make to small covers to go on each side (by CD changer and Jack)
I wanted to get single colored rug but thats all they had for my wallet and I didnt want to order some special-smecial order carpet, but it turned out looking much better then I though it would.

Re: (diive4sho)

looks good, but whydid you raise the floor over the edge of the hatch if you put the tank inside the spare tire well. it should've been low enough, or it wasnt??

that was the whole problem, I didnt like the fact of raising the floor over the edge, but with the way my trunkspace and spare tire pan is structured I had no options. Its either that or Tank on the outside, and I didnt want to show the tank. I really wish my spare tire tub had a D shape instead of O, then I could just put everything inside and not worry about false floor.

yeah, all mk5s have that too, its stupid. idk why VW didnt leave it open like in hte PAssats, or mk4s. Looks good though. When are you doing the rest of the install, bags/struts?

Is that a 5 gallon? The 3 gallons are really small. I did two 3 gallons, you can mount a compressor at any angle and that bracket just un bolts from the compressor body and you can bolt it on any side. I was able to lay the tanks on their sides, and same witht eh compressors, I have big valves so I put them down in the spare tire well. If you click on the link below you can check it out, I dont want to hijack our build thread with a picture of my setup. It works pretty good, floor is above level with the lower trunk trim/latch.
Whats under that carpet? There seems to be a crap load of empty space. Two smaller tanks would probably fit beter, that stupid center hump is a pain in the ass. I don't think there is anything in there either, maybe evap but I doubt it. I would just pull the carpet and all of that and store it somewhere, someone should make a donut tank the size of a spare tire. HA!
I know there are 4 gallon tanks to that are skinny like the 3 gallon. The problem with the 3 gallon is that have a port on the side of it, so you have to factor in the plug height, which I just ended up cutting a hole in the wood floor I made, that allowed the tank to sit as low as possible in my frame. You can see from the pictures of my build.
ANyway looks good cant' wait to see it finished! Looks good, can't wait to see the final product! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
