what is

i have been thinking about redoing my air ride setup and would like to do a hardline setup for everything inside the car, from compressors to tanks from tanks to manifold and use flexible line to the bags but my question is what kind of lines do i use, do i use break lines
I know what to do just unsure of what to do for the plumbing
my current setup



THIS IS MY INSPIRATION

Re: what is "Hardlines" (ryanmiller)

i did hardline to my rear bags, once i get my car in the garage for the winter all lines will be hardline

Thats nuthin-if your shellin for air, just unload a bit more and do it right.

actually it is something if your shelling for air. if you know what you're doing air isnt that expensive at all. and there are many "right" ways to do an air setup http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Sorry-Mr.Swoops-but we all know Air is sexpensive as he11-there may be cheap ass routes, but in the end-who the crap cares when you spend even over a G-$200 more isnt much. You hear

well then that comes down to personal preference. i do think spending $200 more when you've spent say $1500 is a big deal when the extra money is for something cosmetic but really its comes down to the buyer

Re: (Swoops)

i can swing deals tho with getting things since we own the business everyone....the most expensive part would be the line but copper tubing is down in price right now...i could do this for our cost depending which isnt that much

Re: (Oscar33)

got some prices but do it really well i need to know what you guys need for fittings, then i can get an exact price easier than just guessing
a roll of 3/8 line is about 25 for 50 feet and 55 for 100 feet
there are 2 options for benders one being 25 and one being 65
and fittings range from 2 - 5 a piece
pm me with your needs and ill help you guys out, i also have all ptc fittings you need

soft copper for that is actually refrigerant line...it comes in rolls only
and its very easy to straighten it out
