Pics with the new wheels http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4416916
So figured i would go a head and get my build up thread started since i started my build. I dont plan on having this done any time soon, at the earliest im looking is mid march durring spring and at latest by the end of May. With school and all i just dont have the time or the space to do it. Cars currently on H&R Super Sport springs and Bilstein Sport shocks.
But enough with the blabber on to the set up and the pics.
The kit.


Bagyard Front struts.
Slam Specialties RE5 rear bags
Slip and skinny 5 gal tank.

2 Viair duel needle 160psi gauges.
2 6 prong switches ( front up/down, rear up/down)
Bilstein Rear sport shocks
Back to Basics rear cups.
Dual viair 400's
110/145 pressure switch.
Fittings and other misc stuff.
AFC 3/8 manifold valves.
Fablab Pressurite.
And the car its going on.

Re: Project STEALTH, a MKV story...... (runnin9z)

Got the trunk and tank all set up, the goal was to keep it as stealthy as possible and to maximise trunk space to haul stuff back and forth to school. I also wanted to keep a spare tire, i have a 3 hr drive back and forth to school and a blow out on the highway with no spare would suck. I ended up getting a Audi A3 donut spare to save space and it worked out nice. I was also able to get the sub amp off the seat and under the floor.
The floor was raised 7 inches or and it flush with the part where the hatch closes. I should be able to get all the valves and compressors under there.
How it started minus the sub

Progress.


OOOPS had my garge door opener sitting on the roof, dad opend the hatch and it slid in the gap, when we closed it crunch and bend. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Haha i was watching for real no way to avoid it, if i had air i could have aired up and maybe missed it like it was ****ing huge dude for real. It was either hit it or get rear ended slamming on the brakes to get around it.

my only complaint is, how are your going to access the water trap? besides having to take the sub and floor out twice a week

Humm didnt really think about that. Guess im going have to take the sub out every week like you said lol. the floor is able to hinge up and can be propped up with a piece of wood or something so the floor and amp dont have to come completely out.
I guess its a trade off but ill be able to live with it.... hopfully

Hey Barbie Ken i dont want to hear it from you. The idea was for the whole set up to look stock idiot, hence the name STEALTH lol
Water trap mounts between the tank and the compressor.
