Budget air bag build

 Here is a build we just finished up on Joel's and it goes to show you that a reliable air set-up can be built for little money. Some of these parts were purchased used and Joel already had FK coilovers.
all in all the total for this build was $1050 not including coilovers or install.

Air Bagging a VW B6 Passat sedan

Here is a set-up that I originally was just going to build the trunk set-up. After it was finished the owner asked if I could help continue the install on the rest of the vehicle.
The set up consist of the first generation Masontech front struts and Slam specialties re-5 rear bags. The management is controlled by a 7 way switch box that was mounted in the console and a 8 way valve set-up. The switch that you see on the console by the shifter controls the power to the compressors and the lighting system that illuminates the polished tank.
