      Well, it's been a bit of a delay in posting here. I've been doing the mundane air line installs, wire installs, tidying up welds and then prepping for winter. I was also not happy with the old school air compressor tank for my air ride system. It had gunk in it I could not remove, it had leaks I could not fix and the limited ports were all 1/4". So I ditched the old tank and mounted two 5 gallon tanks, flanking the rear seat. Sorry no pics for that today, but I'll get some up later. I did manage to complete my air ride control system, so check out those pics below. I finally found the adapters I need to get a driveshaft built, so that is on order. Can't wait to link the drivetrain together!! I've also been buying parts and getting ready for spring/summer so I can get back into the garage.

      The finished product. I am not 100% sold on the rocker switches. I really wanted the bat wing switches guys use down in So-Cal, but haven't found the exact ones I like yet. This may get changed.

      I've also started to give serious thought to my wheel combo. I love the 'salt flat' look like these two rides are wearing. I just want big 20s or 22s, so my options have become limited. So that is where my mind is at.

        Kool man! The links works.

        I'm liking what your doing. For air ride switches have you checked out like semi truck accessory shops? I commonly see those guys bling up their dashes and get the big switch handles.. I think you can get them that just attach on a normal metal toggle switch.
        That is a pretty cool engine choice too.
        I feel your pain on tin work.... I've just put quite a bit of time into shrinking a truck box and am doing the roof on my build.
        Really glad to see you back at it... hopefully we will cross paths some day with our rides!

          Thanks for the tip Burnin#2!!

          Since February, I completed the brake line install, plumbed in the fuel system, mounted the radiator and plumbed it in, mounted the intercooler, wired up a fuse panel, battery and cut off switch. Got wiring from fuse panel over to underside of dash where original wiring is and got the key switch wired up to a master relay. Tossed the propane tank fuel cell and old dumpy 5 gallon air tank in favor of a new fuel cell and two - 5 gal tanks. Wired up the ECU and did my first start up. From all that, I was able to take it for its maiden voyage yesterday. It was a super exciting time a great milestone accomplishment.

          Next to do, is dress up the ECU wires, wire up some points from the ECU to the dash, shifter and some sensors. Plumb the intercooler and then start work on the floor pans.

            Man I'm loving this thing! I am Ashley building one for a customer as our next big shop project oh, I see in the beginning few post that you used a Mustang to front suspension setup. What set up is it? Is it a standard Mustang II or is it a special width? I did not see that in your posts

              Thanks bud!

              It's the 56" hub to hub universal MII kit from Full Tilt IFS. I found their product to be high quality and the instructions were super easy. I believe they have different widths of universal kits.

                Thanks for the info a man! I used Full Tilt Street Rods stuff on the Ford we just finished up. Good stuff. I will keep an eye on your build for sure. We will be starting this one we're going to do in the next month or so

                      Hey Lowbudget50, I bought it off eBay. I did a search for vanagon steering "thingy"....can't remember what it's called, exactly. But I did a quick search on ebay and here is a link....https://www.ebay.ca/itm/STEERING-SHA...EAAOSwvGlahiil......This one is crazy expensive, as I think I paid under $100 shipped to my house in Canada. I hope this helps!!
