We had this plan of putting the air compressor under the bonnet in our 80 but all the LPG gear has taken up all the room and we are just wondering what other people have done - the only other option would be to leave it seperate in the back somewhere and pull it out when we need it!

Any ideas anyone???

I don't know what LPG gear you have where. I have an 80 series and I have a compressor mounted on a flat board (5ply) which goes under the original battery and sticks out towards the grill. The compressor (Big Red) sits in there with no problems and to use it I just clip the leads to the battery. It is not hard wired.

This seems to work well and the air hose easily clips on and off as it is about battery height. I carry the hose in the back of the vehicle.

In the back of the 80 Series there is a pocket on the drivers side in the cargo area.
Take the whole thing out and the big red will fit in and can be bolted down. If there is a storage system in the back this might cover the pocket.

We have an LPG 80 too. We have an ARB compressor for the lockers and tyre pump hose. ARB Southside put it under the drivers seat with the airline adapter facing the door. Fits a treat, gret spot for the air hose as tha switch is in the console. Compressor stays cool,dry and clean inside. ARB southside advised this position, they say they don't fit them in the engine bay on petrols due to the heat destroying them. I'm rapt with the location. Gives a complementary massage in operation.

Go the mighty 80!

I have just got an arb compressor too and were thinking of putting it under the drivers seat, I was just wondering on yours have they put in a elbow where the PS and hose connection is out of the tank?
