VW MK5 GLI air bag build- whity tighty (Airlift+Autopilot)

Got a chance to bag this clean white GLI and I am glad I did. 
The car didn't need much and a simple set-up was all that it needed. Starting with building a simple metal frame to hold the 2 Airlift valve blocks and 2 gallon tank, it was made to fit in the side cubby on the left hand side of the trunk. The brain to the Autopilot was mounted to the side panel along with the relay and all wiring an airline was fished out behind it keeping it concealed and hidden. The OE carpet floor was then replaced with a hardwood floor to had a little styling to the back end. The Viair 480c compressor was then mounted to the floor underneath the color matched white tank. Hardly any space was lost and the spare tire was also retained. The controller was then mounted and tucked away under the armrest in the console.
