    They look like Parker Hannifin Adex Aircad valves... at least the billet-block portions next to the solenoid control cans... ??? check with Empire and the mystery is over!

    Nice work all around, Mike. Is this project the cause of the ER visit with metal in your eye? That's a drag, but the results on the '54 sure are good. Can't wait to see the finished car.

    Nice work on the body dude. That air setup is sweet. Could I trouble you to take more detailed pics of the EDC install? That was super clever mounting the oir trap onto the pump.

    They are aircraft. I'm pretty sure they are ADEX. They rule, there is no solenoid, just that one piece unit that does everything. Hit up Empire, I'm sure they'd be more than happy to answer any questions and sell you a pair. (520) 888-7639

    Indeed it is. That headlight did me in. My vision is back 100% and to be honest, even though I don't get back to work until the 1st, I'm dying to keep moving on this car! It should be wrapped up before Feb.

    Glad to see this thread. No doubt the "finished" photos will be fun to compare to the shots of the car as it was when you got it.

    The headlites were out of this world. That was a ton of work in two weeks. Maybe I should send you my car and let you go to town on it.

    Glad to see this been away for a minute myself I too will have to stop by one day and sheck it out .Looks good as usual homie
    I'm sorry, I don't care how fucking groovy and melodic metal music might get, you do not EVER dance to metal. PERIOD. You might bang your head, swing and sway with the groove, jump up and down and pit with the other long-hair's, but you don't FUCKING DANCE TO IT.

    Damn, Mike. You get down for sure. I don't know anything about your eye experience, but from personal experience, i'm glad your vision's back. I'll take any amount of stitches over an eye wound. Trying to drive with an eye patch is a bitch too.

    As for that air set up man..that's beautiful.

    Props all around.
