well i decided to do bags instead of coils so i dont bust my oil pan pulling in and out of my driveway. ill just let the pics do the talking cuz i know thats what you guys all want.
Btw heres the car in question.

and heres how the trunk started out

started by building a frame to mount all the components in and raise the floor 7 inches



spare tire access

got a little bit of the wiring done too

then i made the false floor and wrapped it in suede to match the headliner and pillars


and i also molded the digital gauge in the sunroof motor cover


now im just waitin on the compressor and bags
let me kinow what you think so far though

FINALLY!!!!!
no more burst tanks, DOT or otherwise. (not that i'm advocating non-DOT approved tanks, but if you wanna risk life and limb to save a few bucks, at least put one of these bad boys in a port)
