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



I rolled some stainless straps and attached latches and hinges



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





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



I located the controller in the arm rest



Install a nutsert



And install a bag



Connect the bottom end



Connect the airline



And you're done

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



I installed the front E-level sensors like so



And for the rears, install more nutserts



Install the sensor



Plug it in and you're done



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



And the compressors were also mounted with nutserts.

I painted the tank



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

I polished the wheels



Made some hard lines



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:
