So i had a broken bolt in my upper shock mount and this happened.





The finished product. The top is not fastened to the cabinet in any way. It is more wedged into position, which inadvertently stop the squeak in the back seat.





I put the terminal boards for the 12VDC and GND behind the drawer. I figured it would be easier to access in this position and less likely to be damaged than if i put it on the other side.





The tank is 2.5 gallons. I built the cabinet to conceal this. On the right of the picture you can see the manifold that allows me to put the gauge and other items on the outside of the cabinet.





A continous duty cycle air compressor. It will fill the tank in about 3 minutes.





Drawers fully extended. The right one still has wet paint.

Very well done!

Do you notice the compressor when it's running? I have thought of mounting mine there but thought it may be too noisy.

It is a little noisy but not so bad you can't hear the radio. The cover I made for it helps a little. It fills the tank in a short amount of time so the noise isn't an issue for very long anyway.
