    S.W.A.G. - Stuff We All Get

    Car:
    2006 Audi A3 2.0t - taken at the dealership just after signing my life away




    Air Equipment:
    BagYard Bombers (will order when they become available)

    2 Viair 480C compressors



    AccuAir E-level (need some more $$ yet)
    But I do have the VU4



    4.5gal tank (my favorite piece of the whole setup )



    This is my first air ride build. I'm having a blast thus far. I've got some specific design criteria for the end result, so I think I'm going to end up with something a little different than most. The main reason I'm switching over from the static side is, other than curiosity, I drive on some pretty rough roads daily. I've had "adjustable" coilovers in the past, but how adjustable are they, really? I'd much prefer to just hit a button and have the machine adjust itself. I got much more fun stuff to do with my time.

    Thanks guys. The tank was taken from a Rigid wheelbarrow-type, 200 psi air compressor. I got real lucky in finding it purely by chance. It's about a half inch skinnier than the space between the rear strut towers and an inch smaller in diameter than any tank I've been able to find readily available. Since the tank diameter drives the floor height, I wanted to minimize it as much as possible to maximize usable hatch space.

    did you weld in those bungs for the airline fittings?

    if so, hopefully they were done correctly using the right filler metal. Reason is, you don't want that tank failing at the weld.

    The welds on the tank were not done by me. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid. The guy who did weld them is very experienced in high vacuum, high temp furnace assembly. Been welding for years. I'm positive it's fine, though I appreciate your concern.

    Same. I'll try and get some better pics of the welds soon. I'm almost on the fence about painting over them because they're so sexy, but I will.

    Andrew,

    Who's your buddy in Nashua on BYs? I know a lot of the VW/Audi people, but was unaware there were BagYards up here...

    Wy lives in Nashua & running BY on his MkIV Jetta though. But then again Andrew might know other people in that area. :p

    Rob, totally OT here but I have a full Votex 5 piece lip kit for your car if you're interested. I'll let it go for cheap because It's just taking up space at my warehouse.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Thanks, man. I'm super excited, myself. I'm mainly excited about the install for doing something a little bit outside of the box. Unfortunately the overall car has already be done, more or less (Thanks, Jason ). I'm currently driving, and will continue to be once air'd, on these:

    That explains a lot. Kinda wild there's a PVW feature in my hometown and I had a no idea, though... *shrug*

    It's sick and all but, in my opinion, what's the point if you're not going to use it?

    Here's some non-s.w.a.g.



    I call it that because I've never seen anyone else get it or anything quite like it. :p
