Half of it at least. I installed all of the compressors, tank, valves and wiring. Next weekend we will be putting in the bags and thats it. Had a bunch of leaks, but got them all fixed. Attached is a sneak peak of the compressor and tank install. I will be doing a full tech article, but am too tired now.

The sheetmetal is so thin on the magnums. I used self tapping screws and they went through the metal like butter.

Your gonna need more Dynamat than that to muffle the comperssors. Looks good.
Its quiet enough for me right now. I am used to my compressors being under the bed of my truck, so they are a little louder than what i am used to. Unfortunatly, I didn't want to spend $150 on dynamat right now.

I just picked up the Extreme Dynamat bulk pack (9 sheets) for $99 vs. the list price of $249 and did the back of my car.
Man that stuff is sticky...

Got the rear done tonight. Tommorow is the front after a 9am dentist appt. At least if I slip with the wrench and hit my face, I won't feel it from all the novacaine.:fing02: Crappy pics attached. Will take some better ones once I am done and wash her. You can also see in the pic my tinted tails I did earlier this week.

Steve, and Brett- On my black Magnum I dynamated the whole car. When I say the whole car, it was the whole thing. I can say that if you do the roof, it will help the car out a lot. If you hit the top of your car with your fist now, it makes a loud ding sound, after the roof is done, the roof is very dead. (don't hit it to hard lol) I can not say how quiet the car is now. Can I still hear my exhaust-yes, but not as bad. When I get back to Virginia, I am going to take some pictures and see if I can get them posted.
Steve your car looks good. If you notice your tint to start to peel on your tail lights, you can paint them, and they look great...

Thanks. The taillights are actually painted with VHT Nightshade tailight tint and have about 3 coats of clear on them.

The kit didn't come with everything I needed. I had to buy a few more fittings. I am still awaiting the Dakota Digital guages, should be here this week. I had to buy all of the wires, fuse, electrical connectors, a couple of sockets and tools I didn't have in my toolbox, fiberglass and bondo and paint for the radio bezel(since I put my switches there). All together I probably spent around $3000 or so.
