I guess you can call it a build if you wish. More like buy some parts, put them on. Not much to it really. I'm trying to get something together before the LouisvilleVW BBQ here in Louisville. (200+ cars + new venue = you should come) Then plan to touch it up and whatnot afterward.
I picked up the air lift struts today. They need a little love. Going to sand them down and re-paint them today.

And a few pics of my car.


I sold my coils today, car is back on stock suspension. So I'm ready to get stuff started and out of donk status.

Re: (platinumgrey_1.8T)

Dont be dissapointed if ur front doesnt go lower than ur coils did.
air lift(easytreet) is known for not going low, and ur rear bags are proly going to rub on the cup where they sit.
jsut giving u a heads up.

Yeah, after looking at it though I'm more worried about the lift I'm going to get out of it rather than how low it will go. It looks like it will be low enough for me since the offset on the wheels is 0 and going to sit on the tires anyway.
And probably going to replace the rear bags eventually with Slam Bags, just so I will have the warranty for replacing the bags, incase I do run into a lot of rubbing issues.

Probably so, but oh well live and learn. I got a decent deal on these, and made some money off my coils to help me get bagged quicker.
Ordered some parts today.
From KrisDye Fabrications...
(2) Viair 380 compressors w/ pressure switch and 2 relays
EAI 5 switch switchbox
5 gallon tank w/ 5 1/2" ports
And my fittings from Suicidedoors.com

Got some stuff in the mail today. Although my switch box wasn't in the box.:sad: But I'm sure it will be taken care soon. Going to sand on the tank and re-paint it now.

http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif on them, they refused to even help just ignored my emails.

KrisDye Fabrications is def. a good guy. He called me and said he ships the switch box separate w/ the shirt and bunch of stickers, but he never got an email from me about shirt size, that I never got either. So he called me and is mailing it out. Good guy w/ good prices.
On a side note went to Lowes and found the rest of the fittings I needed. I figured I just wouldn't even wait to deal with bs from SD.

Their PTC fittings wont work, trust me...
All other kinds should be ok

Yeah, I picked some up anyway, but I mostly just needed some reducing things.
What's a good site for fittings? I need (4) 1/2" OD x 3/8" NPTF
