SC430 Air ride plan and prep

My air ride came in last week but haven't had a chance to work on it any. Had the day off today so wanted to figure out where I can place everything. Wow, there is NO room in the trunk and I ordered these mammoth air zenith compressors which I wish I hadn't. The smaller viair 444c could fit well in the cubby on the left and right of the trunk. Well spilt milk, so after removing all the panels etc figured out the only place I could put the compressors etc would be showing in the trunk, my initial plan was to try to hide the compressors and maybe just have the tank showing. I am able to mount the valve body ecu and wiring etc in the 'wheel well'. Got some mdf traced out the carpet with a little excess sanded it down to fit perfectly and made stands on the edges so the board sits flat and can handle the weight of the compressors and anything else I throw in the trunk. 

Here are some pics of how it sits.




I ended up breaking the edge of the plastic trim where the door latch is so need to find one of those now.. I'm not exactly sure when I'll be able to get more done but I'm hoping soon. Plan is to mount the level sensors next and then on another day run air lines etc and install suspensions.
