    web page I got the OK from the wife to get the bigger 2 stage with more CFM....When I plumbed it I put the filter and regulator before the shut off should I redo it so the shut off is before everything else or does it matter... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Put the shut off valve before everything else. That way if you have an issue, you don't have to drain the tank. Much less air to bleed from the filter/reg and hose.

    Looks like a sweet setup man! Just 1 question for you..since I have NEVER seen you work on yer rig, are you actually going to USE it?? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif If not, we can break it in on mine /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif Gotta rear spring swap to do /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
