Fitting an air compressor
Did I need anything from the States? Well, after much thinking I got a Viair 450 air compressor. Not that I really needed it ...
Fitting an air compressor and tank (click on pictures to enlarge) The compressor was fitted in the passenger-side seatbox. So far this seems the best place to put it (in a Tdi). It can draw enough air, is relatively safe from dust and dirt and, if seatbox is properly sealed, also from water. I have not experiences any problems with heat generated by the unit. So far it hasn't overheated, also when inflating all four tires. A big thanks go out to my mate Lars for the help, for welding the stainless air tank and supplying other bits and pieces.
