Air Bagging a B6 Passat sedan- California style (Accuair+Bagyard)

Just got back in town from this build in Sunny SoCal, starting off with a Passat B6 sedan. The customer still wanted trunk space and a spare tire. Instead of building a false floor we started from the original floor height and built up a rolling floor, only increasing in height were needed yet keeping the flow of the back area. The custom painted Mocha Brown tank was partial exposed and the rest of the Accuair e-level management and dual Viair 444c were hidden from plain site.
The controller was then mounted in the custom made cup holder mount that was previously made before the trip. It still allows use of the holders in the euro cup holder as well as concealing the controller when need be.
The level controllers were then mounted in the front by welding two studs for the upper sensor and drilling and tapping the lower arm for the lower mount. The rear was bolted in instead.
Bagyard Supremes w/ sway bar attachment were used to bring the front down and Slam Specialties re-6's and D-cups were used for the rear.
