i was just wanting to know how every one ran there air line :biggrin: but i want detail.
i was thinking of running the front lines down the back seat and throw the floor pan next to the frame rails, is this a good idea? and how often did you use clamps along the way to the front?

I always try to run them away from heat or any sort of friction. I run air lines through some sort of conduit...eg wire loom....heater hose...etc.. If you are going to run it through the floors or past any metal I would recommend using pieces of heater hose when passing by it....

Another idea is to visit your local truck/air brake service center, most places carry "d" clips. You can get them in brass or chrome finish. They have a rubber gromet around the edge so you don't have to worry about it cutting through the line

back when i used to run airlines i would NEVER ever over book or have any pilots with out 50,000 hours experiance or even go with a flight attenedant that didnt know cpr....dont get me wrong i can tell you how to run air lines all day but its not easy you gotta know who to hire and where to place them you also gotta keep a fleet of about 175 planes constantly moving around the world. there is also keeping all the machine stuff working nicely, never keep tires on a plane after 16 landings they are trash after that. and one last tip ill give you is to pay attention!

Run them through the firewall and under the carpet it looks cleaner. That's what my buddy did with his regal.

I ran everything under the car along the frame rails... i am redoing my rear suspension (cleaning things up a little) right now and i will have many pictures up on here very soon (as soon as i am done)... basically all i am doing now is mounting the top rear mounts solid to the frame cause i bent the center rod in my pass. rear bracket... before, the tops of the rear were just sitting in the top spring perch but one came out and bent over, so i am mounting them solid (had to cut some of the trunk floor up to be able to put a washer and nut on the top mount)... i will have tons of pics soon...

But i did have all my air lines running from the trunk under the car and strapped them to the frame rails using zip ties... works very good... never had a problem with the lines yet... just make sure you keep them away from your exhaust... :)

Jason
