I'd like to see how you progress with this if you don't mind sharing as you install.

not exactly going for how low we can go...it will set pretty low when at a stand still but the guy that started the car took the torsions out and only installed airshocks instead of airbags.....he was wanting to do air shockwaves but im guessing he ran out of money to do it...sold the car....and the new owner blowed one airshock out and laid the tires all the way down on the body...so i will design it to be close to almost hitting the body at its lowest point and then raise from there abount 6-8 inchs...maybe more....just trying to get it stable so the new owner can enjoy the car and drive it some...new owner has had this car for five weeks now and has only drove it around the block three times....im going to change that for him

Looks great! I personally would have run a section of airline through the floor so it dumped outside so it's not quite as loud, plus, you'll get water in the interior sooner or later like that.

I hate switchboxes, they are only good for pulling the switches you need out of them and hardmounting them. I actually used Lincoln Towncar driver's side window switches on my truck, four nice looking rocker switches with the ability to cut power by pushing the window lock button.
