    Couldnt figure out where to mount it inside the rig...and wanted the space.. so i had it welded to the kaymar left swing out. Turned out perfect. Like 1/2" gap between the tire and tank. Opens fine.

    Very nice. How do you have it secured/locked to the rig so it's not stolen?

    The powertank brackets come with built in lock tabs - just use a padlock.

    See the right side, there are two where the straps snap..

    hehehe - agreed. Although my Source regulator is very nice, the Powertank's regulator is even nicer. Release the CO2, couple of turns with a wrench and it's all mine! Keep that baby inside unless you are with the rig! The regulator alone is pricey!

    Two straps - nice. Mine has one strap and a very similar tab you can get a small padlock thru.

    What slum neighorhood accepted you? Neighbors obviously didn't run a background check on you did they?

    Seriously - congrats on the house! Let the new mods begin - welcome to home ownership.

    Thanks man...i appreciate it. Remember the Thanksgiving Fun Run? Well we bought a condo (not a house) that is backed up to the hills with a great view. We are very excited. This is our first place. No more throwing our money in the trash!

    Congratulations on the condo Dave. The air set up looks realy good, just like it belongs on the swing out. You might want to make a small fabric pouch with a cinch string on it to protect the regulator from dirt and contaminants when out wheeling.
