why not just use a cross in between the valves instead of 2 tees? or buy the tee with the guage fiting that suicidedoors.com sells.

You are using the chassistech digital kit, Spray the actuall senders down with soapy water to verify they are not leaking. I have had a bunch of customers bring bring me parts that I refuse to install and that is 1 of them lol.

Yes ditch the black pipe fittings, we sell a brass fitting with a 1/8 port drilled/tapped into the side.

All the same size tanks and pumps? I wont be in the shop untill monday, if you call me up then I can give you some tips on setting it up in your trunk.

i dunno if my setup can help or give you ideas but i used to 9 gallon tanks that fit nice and snug, plumed the valve the same on each side with quick connect jic fittings and clips for the wireing, they are also labled so if a vavle ever goes bad i can take it out fast and have no trouble remembering the wireing, valves are grounded to themselves too

this was the mock up pic with the pressue switch and gauge sender, the other side has a plug and the air inlet with a water trap, i also put on adjutable air mufflers later



here it is all installed

Besides the obvious cosmetic issues what are the draw backs to using black pipe fittings?
Moisture causes them to rust inside, & low psi ratings.

I can see the rust issues but really if you have a system with water traps, like your supposed to, then how much of an issue is it really. As far as the psi ratings, they're rated to 150 psi just like our tanks?
