I cut this tank off a contractor air compressor and welded on a couple fittings

Audi A3 build 962592881_photobucket_60506_

I rolled some stainless straps and attached latches and hinges

Audi A3 build 2011-04-25_22-19-55_438

I don't have the optional 6-CD changer, so I was able to utilize this space

Audi A3 build 2011-05-30_22-52-28_116

Audi A3 build Photobucket-4462-1310133209879

And you can't really see it here, but the E-level ecu is in the "cage"

Audi A3 build Photobucket-36894-1310144829729

I located the controller in the arm rest

Audi A3 build Photobucket-5079-1310182442076

Install a nutsert

Audi A3 build Photobucket-9373-1313241504863

And install a bag

Connect the bottom end

Here's a decent pic of the front bags installed, along with new rotors and pads and painted calipers and stainless lines

Audi A3 build 2012-02-11_13-00-18_140

I installed the front E-level sensors like so

Audi A3 build 2011-08-20_15-04-27_512

And for the rears, install more nutserts

Audi A3 build 2011-08-20_12-13-08_263

Install the sensor

Audi A3 build 2011-08-20_12-15-43_15

Plug it in and you're done

Audi A3 build 2011-08-21_14-28-19_351

Here you can see how I mounted the tank with the straps I mentioned earlier

Audi A3 build 2011-09-10_12-48-26_900

And the compressors were also mounted with nutserts.

I painted the tank

Audi A3 build 2011-11-25_19-50-47_491

It looks like the pads got sprayed too, but it's grease.

I polished the wheels

Audi A3 build 2012-02-29_21-17-32_295

Made some hard lines

Audi A3 build 2012-03-24_20-10-56_254

Put the lip kit on

Cool wagon. How high up can you raise it for bad roads?

Ay Shaun I think it goes higher than stock. Unfortunately, I didn't measure stock. But just eyeballing it, it's pretty close to stock at least, but my highly calibrated vision says higher than stock.

These two photos demonstrate the difference between all-the-way-up and all-the-way-down:
