    In my Engineering class we needed to do a project of our choice. I thought about building an on board air compressor for my truck. I made one that puts out about 5CFM, I want to get a small tank on it, any ideas for stuff to add? If this one gose well i may try to market it after a awhile of hard testing. How much would you pay for something like this($150)? Thanks for your input, just trying to make something for everyone to enjoy soon, hopefully.

    This wil be an all electric system so anyone with 12v can use it, hopefully with a quick connect system so it can be hard mounted or portable.
