    Nice work.
    Just picked up an assorted bag of those exact terminals a couple weeks ago. Didn't know they existed until I bumped into them chasing down some 3M heat shrink with sealant. Don't have an immediate need for them, but I damn sure bought on sight. :thumbsup:

    Love me some quality heat shrink goods.

    Thanks!

    Same here. I just enjoy good heat shink stuff also. These sealed ones are just crazy. You'll love them.

    I really like this set up!
    I guess that is what I was looking for all this time, a manifold. And is a great inexpensive way to convert to OBA while also having the ability to add a tank in future.

    Now where to mount my compressor...

    @tonered thanks for this thread, I found it through that other thread. I've got a 300P, and I'm debating getting an 88 or using the 300P for an OBA setup. Need to see if I can mount it under the hood.
    Great info here, more to add to my mod research effort this weekend.

    You're welcome!

    IMHO after using my 300P for airing up, I would stick with it over an 88P for the CFMs. Those last couple PSI take a while.

    Also, be sure to check out @Shellshock 's deflator / inflator setup. It makes airing down and up really easy and costs not too much more than a set of deflation adapters.

    That's kind of what I was thinking since I'm sure the loss of push from going down to the 88 would offset the space savings. I just need to figure out a mount for the 300 in the engine compartment.

    You could save a lot of space by ditching the foot plate. In fact, something like the Viair Hardmounts might be the better way to go?

    .....aaaand another mod to buy.
    I'll take a look at that. I was starting to consider how to remove the baseplate and work up a mount or seeing if the Slee mount could work.

    Hey, Folks.

    I just added some details about the outlet fitting. I am attempting (again) to swap it for a female coupler.

    Oh yeah. Female outlets are the best. :santa2:

    I updated the 1st Post with what I hope should be the end of the Viair mods.
