This project was ment to be cheap, easy to build and very usefull. With a Setup like this I can run an impact for small tasks or various air tools, fill tires quickly and its portable. I bought the pump ($60) and the tank ($48) on ebay. Then I played at home depot for the different air fittings, gauges and hoses($25).

  • Firestone 5 Gallon air tank with 2 1/2" ports
  • Firestone 12v Pump 1.8 CFM at 90 PSI
  • Quick disconnects at each end to make tank portable.
  • 160 PSI Gauge

Its just switch controlled power for the compressor as of now, I plan on running a 140/110 pressure switch control when I install my train horns :D

where you mounted the compressor, did you have the stock sub and amp there? and if so, how did you get everything out.

by the way it looks real good.
