i like that one even better than the first, is it a skylark? what kind of air setup does it have? here's the buick i'm working on now, i have the body off and frame stripped down and ready to reinforce it and install bags, i know it looks rough but it's going to be a long project car that me and my little brother build for him when he turns 16 in four years.

Hey Simplicity if I call ya on Tues who do I ask for?? I'm going to Princess Auto they got good deals starting on Tuesday. Let me know would ya. I saw a 68 Chev Impala 2 door lowered with Air bags a while back and that got me hooked on this project of mine. Frank I'll bet that Buick of yours will look great when she's done. Simplicity it looks like your place does excellent work by the picks you've shown so far. Can I possibly bring my digital camera with me to take some pics? If not, no problem. Looking forward to next week!!!

speed

Yo Bud I like my setup nice and smooth. I went with Air Ride Tech's "Cool Ride" for my six six Impala. System works flawless. I have 1/4 line and was running a 12 gallon tank in my six six. It would get up in 1.5 seconds. But I am now back with a five gallon tank and a Viar Compressor so it rises around 2.5 seconds. And my six six weighs 4100 lbs.



Here is a short video clip of my car with only a 3 gallon tank. This is right after I installed the system. About a 3 second rise time.

Everyone has their own taste bro. The main thing is you get your ride bagged....... Good luck with you install....!!!!

black66 i've seen that clip before, that impala is nice, any bigger pictures of the whole car? do you have manual valves? i had the coolride kit with 1/4" lines and it moved WAY slower than that, when i was lifting it you could barely even tell, same with dumping even though that was a little bit faster, but not much. nice car, i'll try and post a video of my setup too so you guys can see how 1/2" moves, if i can figure out how.

I like those valves. I had those on my truck years ago. I should never have sold them, I love that speed.

oh ok that explains why it's so much faster, those valves are way better than the garbage manual ones.

When are the high performance companys going to start making tubular control arms and other primo parts for the 65-66 Impalas???? Someone needs to step up for some the other Chevy boyz that are rolling the six fives and six six's.....!!!!

I am in the process of picking up a 70 Chevelle for my wife. She wants it bagged as well...

they're sooooooooooooo slow, you have to run a bagillion miles of air line, and they release the nasty smelling compressed air into the car with you. but you're right, they're cheap and won't freeze open or shut, no wires to run, and it's really easy to get the exact psi you want in the bag, so i guess they're good if you don't care about speed.
