Got this thing in my garage now. I can start re-wiring the switches. Mount the airtank on the frame on the pass side and install the compressors on the rear. Then re-do the hoses and wire it up so the suspension is ready to go. Then onto the motor. Then body work and then will be time for a cruise!

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

Just finished mounting the first compressor. Got it all wired minus the pressure switch wire. Gotta wait till I mount the tank and move some airlines for that. Went pretty well. I'm happy with it and this way everything will be hidden under the bed mounted on the frame!

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

Just finished getting both compressors mounted. Got them all wired up except for the two wires that go to the pressure switch , which ill do once I mount the tank. And I mounted the air filters on the inside of the frame rail.

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

Looks good! Will your tank fit in between the rear frame rails? If it did, I'd think that'd look better and be easier to later access all the compressors, tank, and valves, if they were in the same place, rather than on the passenger side. I mean mine is on the passenger side, so there's nothing wrong with it being there. Lol.

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

You should think about mounting your compressors with the heads upright

Re: My 85 chevy c10 build

This is straight from the viair website.

Q: Is it possible to mount VIAIR compressors sideways, or must it be mounted with the cylinder upright?
A: You can mount in any direction or position since VIAIR compressors are oil-less. The only position we do not recommend is an upside-down mount, since heat tends to travel upward, and does not dissipate well in the motor housing. A sideways mounting may reduce the life of the piston seal, since everything is governed by gravity and has a weight associated with it.

if i was you and i had the frame by itself just laying there i would yank all the lold wires out of there and take all the air ride stuff off and paint everything and even if it took you a little longer than what you want, you will feel better about it and you gonna be glad you did it while it was all apart beacuse i can almost guarantee that you gonna wish you did it but than its gonna be too late cause you gonna have the truck all put back together... been there done that.... i always rush and than wish i would have done it different later.
