most of you know that i installed a helluva train horn system which includes a VIAIR compressor and air tank. I finally got around to being able to install my air lines and fittings to allow me to use the system to air up tires and the like...i am really loving this project more and more ...its been fun and challenging to come up with a way to accommodate my needs...here are a few pics!!

the air line comes out a small hole on the drivers side directly underneath the mount for the door shock..

i bought a 50' coiled hose so that i dont have to stretch it and possibly break it and so other folks can use it too if needed. i have a Campbell Huasfeld tire inflator/deflator that will be attached to the hose...going to make airing my tires easier and more comfortable...

Looking good, that train horn is fun!

Since your air coupler is outside getting exposed to dirt, mud, critters, etc. I would fab up a plug or cover to keep garbage out of it.

Last thing you want to be doing after a long hard day of wheelin' is cleaning mud out of your nipples.
