And only one injury. My wire strippers shattered on me from the cold while I was crimping the connector to go on the power wire and sliced the top off my thumb.

Yeah, I am. I had a shop mix me up some with my paint code so it matches my car perfectly.

I agree Dan.. That'* why it was automatically in a reel. I used to coil hose up on the compressor handle and ....it'* a nuisance.

I hate rolling up hoses. Mount your coil above your work area. You will love it.

I find it easier to move the air compressor out to the middle of the yard for squirrel catapults.

After completing the build on the 99 Trans Am (LS6 block, forged crank, high compression pistons, high output oil pump, heads, blower cam, P1SC supercharger, FW CAI, LSx intake, 60# injectors, rockers and springs, lifters, clutch, bullet proof bell housing, remote clutch bleed system, headers, full exhaust, wide band O2, all new mounts, catch cans and pretty much every mod you can put into this engine) we finally dialled in a tune that gave a decent idle and didn't foul plugs every 15 minutes. The specs for everything done says it should put out between 575 and 600 RWHP. Took it for a run last night and it is stupid fast. Eased it through first and into second, gave it the smallest of shots and put it sideways.

Next on the list is installing a second fuel pump to keep up with the demand, and then figuring out what to do with the rear end and the drive shaft. This HP would blow the rear end and turn the prop shaft into a pretzel if I launched it. Also, we will start collecting data and complete dialling in the tune.

I will take pictures this weekend if I get a chance and post them.
