If your experiencing condensation in your air line, consider a refrigerated air dryer. You can find these priced fairly descent, and it should resolve any condensation in the lines, and save you money and a great deal of frustration.

It is 1 thing if you are using the air to run a business and another if using it as a hobby like most of us are if refrigeration is the way to go or not. Also they are not as cheap as you make it out to be and yes I did look into it. Just like the compressor you need to size the drier for the CFM being used otherwise you will still have wet air.

I have not really put my system under a lot of load yet but so far I have not seen any water at any of the drip legs only at the tank that I drain before each use. I will post back when I use it more.

Wow guess it's been a little bit ;)
So an update:
Got to say the whole air system works great. I have only had a little water at the fin tube "air dryer" none at any of the line drops and I use only 1 most of the time. The one up front between the 2 bays.

I have used air on a 81 F100 Ford PU I am doing a frame off rebuild on.


Where I am at now

So between metal work, body work with air grinder & sanders and spray painting the fire wall, door jambs and inside of cab it has been worked hard.

Dave, Great looking work and glad to hear how well your system is working!  Max line is super stuff and you did a very nice installation that will serve you well for years to come.

Thanks on both the work done & air line.
With the air system I wanted something that would last.
Nothing like getting part way thru a job and having the system fail.

I am vary happy the way it turned out and works. With just me using the air the system is over kill but you know what they say......
Go big or go home! LOL

Dave, I hope everything is going well down south for you and the family, it certainly appears to be. I think I'm probably not alone when I say that I'd love to see more pictures of the project. It looks cool for sure. Andy
