Is that purge bad for the paint?

Doesnt hit the paint Bill..Close but doesn't. Frosts up the wipers a little and may degrade the rubber. But there cheap enuff. Neons are going in the grille work Xcalipur and I the pin point laser array wouldn't go thru grille. Also defeats the main purpose of the purge.... to vent off the vapor in line till it'* all liquid and release nitrous pressure at the end of run so you need to see it. And at $5 a pound you want to see the vapor turn to mist and shut purge as soon as possible. I've done three go get em nitrous runns and quite a few purges at nite with laser lit and the $50 to fill bottle is almost gone Tracy I meant Haros etched glass club decals.

it'* in my sig. A 12V high flow aircompressor and three gallon tank in trunk. Still waiting for the swich'* and two stage air regulator. For now it will raise the rear as needs to for lauching. Also custom made air bag struts are going on the front and I'll be putting at least 70 series on my wheels when I burn OEM up. Want car in air like late 60'* muscle cars and fill the wheel wells with rubber. My new wheels will take a 18 x 275 tire.

The vent is very high pressure and can be bent to get it just as you want it. The laser array slips over the vent tube and has a set screw. I have it so it just clears the top of the car. What concerns me more is the nose. I need to find a bra for nose for travel only and havent had luck yet. Ya can get one for every ricer made it seems but not a Bonnie So if ya see my nose covered in saran wrap/ dont laff.Someone told me 3m makes em for everything in a clear plastic and I need to check that out but I believe that ones semi-pernament and that wont do. Sucks cause paint cant be touch up. just redone. if I scratch a fender, the whole fender has to be redone

i had air ride on my car if you didnt know 10 switchs 8 gallons of air

Viair makes good compressors i had a 550c

your going to need Vavles which im sure you know go with Parkers the best $ can buy seeing as vavles is the heart of any set-up

Checked out your page Gameover , NICE. Shame it was totaled. Question... Why did you go to such an extreme? That was alot of serious air. I'm not really tricking mine out much. The new bag struts dont require the flow or pressure of air bags. Just want some height and clearance for the new rubber, and the ability to jack rear for quatermile. Mine will have just a couple selonoid valves and 2 dual stage regulators for a constant height ride. I was leaning towards full cabin control but settling for adjusting height with one regulator for front struts tied together, and one for the back. plus full pressure valve to rear for racing. Did you save all your components for new car?

Well the sun came out todat and I snaped a few late in afternoon with new tripod.
Sooner or later I have to find some cooler scenes to put the Bonny in

First one is before I went to carwash It got all that just coming down my driveway last nite




The paint is so detailed I frustrated that I cant get defining pics. The sun was setting so next time trying for high noon






But they are alot clearer with the tripod
