    so ive decided that im going to redo my air setup in the bed of my truck (1995 Ford Ranger Splash for those that dont know). i have decided i want to mount as much of the air stuff under the bed as possible to kinda clean up the bed a little bit and so i can actually haul my stuff to car shows with no problem. heres what my bed setup looks like now:

    as stated, all that is gonna try and get moved under the bed.

    after looking a little bit, i noticed that the bolts holding my compressor are VER loose...well the 2 left. the other 2 are gone. heres a pic:

    yeah, im glad im doing this now because anytime now that compressor is gonna go flying into my bed and possibly be gone forever.

    ive also decided to label everything because if i dont, i will get confused as to what goes where...lol.

    friday im going to the Gauge Magazine store in Indy to pic up my new 5 gallon 8 port black tank since my chrome 5 gallon 4 port tank is rusting. saturday is when tear down begins!! ive got my buddy Phil coming to gimme a hand so he can give me ideas and pointers since im still kinda new at this. im going to try and paint the rear frame section too but we will see how that goes. id honestly like to since its rusting pretty bad under there. anyways, more pics to come soon!!

    Temp solution, grind off surface rust and spray it with some rustoleum.

    You have a bed cover?

    uh huh. the air tank is going where the gas tank was and the valves are going to be mounted on the tank. the compressor and the pressure switch (that grey box on the left on the bed) is gonna be mounted somewhere too. not sure yet. will figure out a place once i get the bed off to look around.

    I vote you keep all of the air stuff where it is, and put the gas tank back where it belongs. If its too low for that, put a fuel cell under there..
