I spent a long time test fitting and evaluating different ideas for my air and stereo setup.
A big reason I was attracted to air ride was the extra equipment and the opportunity to dress it up.
My priorities were:
Enough room for subs, amps, and extra battery.
Keeping OEM safety equipment and functional spare tire
Clean and simple design.
This quickly led to the conclusion that the rear seat was not going to stay. This was not a big loss to me in how I use the car.
I used cardboard and the templates from AccuAir to dry run all my pieces.
On to the pics:
Seats and everything removed:
Test fit of AccuAir components, with Air Zenith OB2, 5 gallon skinny tank, and full size spare.
Covering the whole trunk area in texture coat to cover the low paint coverage from VW
I created a thin floor cover of carpet wrapped wood and built up the air components on a work bench.
Fitting the sub enclosures, amp rack, and 2nd battery
The OEM safety triangle and first aid kit are in the stock location on the driver side fender well
The OEM jack and tools were stored in a custom mount
All wiring was loomed and tucked. Bulkheads were used for lines through body. Custom fire extinguisher was added to passenger side fender well
Top cover panels were made using, MDF, OEM trunk carpet and plexiglass.
Custom covers were maid from MDF shaped round to cover the body that gets left exposed when rear seats and seatbelts were removed.
