FINISHED PICS PAGE 3!!!!
pictor up date on page 2
So i finally crossed over and ordered my air ride kit this afternoon. I have been talkign to Kevin at ACC for a few days now and we finally put together a kit. I should start to see parts coming on Tuesday and the rest by Friday.
Quick run down of my set up. I went with a real simple set up. 3 switches 1 for the 2 front 1 for the 2 rear 1 pancake. I have no need to go side to side. My main deal for doing this si to make my life a little easier since the car is my daily driver. I got a 3 gallon tank, 1 400c compressor, 4 1/4 valves, water trap, pressure switch, all 1/4 lines, 2 gages and all brass push to fir connections. 2 unair front bags a shock airbag kit from chapman for the rear. Wasnt going for anything crazy want simple and effective. frame is getting notched and what evere other frame and sub frame moods have to be doen will be done. I am currently runnign b&g coils. My goal is not so much to lay from but to lay fender on the lip of the rim.
updates will come as progress with this build
the car

Re: My MK3 Jetta build (SD auto NY)

You've definitely built one classy Jetta. I like the look of the not so deep RS'...
The small lips look great, as does the rest of the car.

It's gonna feel nice touchin pavement with a flick of a switch.

Re: (98DUB)

yea thanks guys. i cant wait im so excited. I am 99.9% sure ill be able to tuck full tire all around and get the fender on the lip of the rim. most deff in the rear and i dont see why not in the front being i only have about an inch gap as is. I cant wait till all the boxs come. I told the parental units i was going to try to do it before H2O but they have no idea i ordered the stuff. I love credit cards.
I am basically going to run the system them over the winter possibly move to a digital management system and id like to do full copper lines and depending how it works out with 1 3 gallon tank possibly get another and have one tank for the front wheels and one for the rear, first thing is getting this system working

Anyone have any wiring diagrams. kevin said he'd send me some but just wondering if any of you guys have come up with your own plans and thought the results were worth sharing

lol, I was talking about in terms of style... as in gonna look sick.

The fact that a good air set up only runs about as much as a good set of coils really makes me want bags.
