getting ready to bag a 78 fleetwood limo. want to run nitrogen (cause i got the bottle for free). i am ordering the parts through my work which is a industrial plant and has nothing to do with cars, but i can get stuff at a killer deal due to the amount of parker valves and such that we use. need to know on bags, what type of firestone bags to run im guessing 2600lb. because of the weight of the car, but what part number for a fleetwood. and any fleetwood brackets or would i be better off making them. when im running from a bottle it would go: bottle to regulator to tank to valves to bags, or do i also need a pressure switch. this is my first bag project so dont kill me for asking to many questions, thanks a bunch

I have a F/B set-up now and I'm bored with it. As soon as I get the time and funds, I'm completely redoing it, tho.

Not only are more moves more fun, but faster is always better. Go with at LEAST 1/2", or you're just asking for boredom to set in. Especially with a beast like that.

you should do fbss. because the bags will transfer air from one side to the other. wont be good.
2600 will be good enought, i would use slams 3ply or conitechs 4ply. 2600x4=10,400 and 2600x2=5,200 they will pick up your ride no problem. and sence you are using nitrogen you will always have the pressure needed to lift the ride.
IMO, smc kicks ass :biggrin:

and just a side note, dont use something just becauses its free or cheap

definetly run fbss. run a dual 1/2 port contitech 4 ply. In my beleifes dual port is easier to plum even if runnin a single lift becsue then you dont have to urn a T for the dump valve. remember your ride will handle like total shit with fb.
how is running more lines and fittings easyer than just putting a T fittings holding the dump and lift together?
