Build: Viair 10005 kit and Big rig horn

Hi first of all I don't know if this is the right place to start a build but here it goes. Always been interested in buying an onboard air system and found one for a decent price so I decided to buy one. Found this Viair kit ( #10005 ) at 4wheelparts for $330 was a good deal for me so I bought it. I think this will be be a long build for me seeing that I don't really have time to work on my truck, and I haven't found any real detailed info about installing this product. So I figure I start a build, so here's some pics.

This is My Truck I'm installing it in.

I'd like to install on-board air on my 6.0 as well.

Thanks for subscribing. So I was looking around for places to mount the tank and compressor, and was thinking of mounting it the bed but I don't want to lose bed space so... I found a place under the passenger side door on the frame rail. I think I'll mount it there that way the lines are hidden versus in the bed looking like spaghetti. Haven't opened it yet but I was looking at the picture and I think I'll have to invest in a multi port in order to run the horn. Also I think I would like couplers on both sides of the truck instead of one on the truck so investing in another coupler for me is a must.

So I opened the box today and let me tell you they have this kit setup and organized for a do it yourself-er. Everything in this kit comes labeled and numbered for each part for example (package 1 gauge installation pack) and the gauge box is next to the pack.... Anyways I took out the tank and put it on the underside of the frame rail and found another problem. With the tank mounted to the frame the drain **** is facing the side of the truck making it difficult to drain the tank, so I decided to search for another alternative. If I make a bracket from the bottom of the frame there is no room for the tank while using the top port so my solution is to hang the tank upside down, now to find something to make a bracket with. For now I'm going to go to the hardware store to pickup some primer and black paint because the tank sticks out like a sore thumb, and I don't really need people under my truck trying to figure out what that silver thing is.

Got home and decided to start painting the tank. By the way found some left over primer from a prior project and decided to use that, and just picked up some black paint from the store. Started prepping the tank by using some electrical tape to cover the ports if you have sticker dots I think it would be better my ports are going to Have squares on it but that's ok main thing is to hide the tank. Clean the tank with some paint safe degreaser, hang it with a metal hangar through the bolt holes then clean the legs. I cleaned the tank and the legs together then primered the top when I got to hanging the tank I forgot the natural oils from my hand would bubble the paint but I took care for that. oh I also took the stickers off prior to cleaning with a heat gun and stuck them to wax paper for later usage. I think I'll paint tomorrow and another thing I found some galvanized unistrut (metal for bracket) that I'll cut later.

So got a lot of work done today starting with the tank, the primer is over dried started painting let me tell you this tank looks good layered about 4 light even coats while the tank was hanging waited about 2 hours and reapplied the stickers, that way by the time the paint cures the stickers will be stuck on there. Picked up some galvanized unistrut and cut it 12 inches long with a 2 inch angle cut that equals a almost exact 45 degree cut also primered and painted the unistrut. oh Picked up some 7/16 grade 8 bolts for the unistrut that way I have a stronghold of the tanks even off road. heres some pics of todays progress.

If I remember you can change the way they "plan" to place the outlets on the tank to make the drain on the "top" of the tank which becomes the bottom when Attaching it upside down.
