    The safety factor for using a can of under arm spray must be huge.
    Ha Ha watch this Boom too many things to go wrong, Compressors
    are much better than the old thomas bullet from years ago, which
    couldn't blow a fly off a turd, lol Invest in a tank for that burst of air
    plenty of spots underneath for a decent tank and if you're compressor
    is up to scratch you'll be able to "show off" using some air tools.
    I will have my 3 gallon tank bolted to the cargo barrier once I strip
    it out of the other 4x4.....lol I also have a motor and tank combo to
    run front air locker and air horns............lol

    Remember to keep that cargo barrier high pressure tank down low and safely as possible away from passengers heads/backs remember John mate, lol ;-) Kimbo squeezed his tank I believe deep in the GU wagon rear well inside arch area. Mines luckily a ute chassis mount so easy peasy it was as ET would say. Can't remember which thread it was but someone also found a great wagon chassis position too for 2 x small scuba tanks up underneath I thought?

    That does look like great gear mate, many size tanks available also! Reckon I'll have to look into their air sus too once my Firestone on airs have seen their day. Cheers for the link John :-) !

    Ive had that tank for over 20 years I brought them from a mob in QLD that did
    air suspension for cars boing boing boing lol only paid about $60 from memory.
    Combined with a 3/4hp compressor it took little effort inflating tyres and engaging
    2 x lockers. in hindsight I think those thumper pumps are better than the 3/4hp job
    and a 1/4 of the price

    I was thinking of using four or so empty throw away argon bottles attached with saddles to the chassis and connected together to create a large volume of air.

    Should in theory work Mudnut mate. Don't know much about their expiry dates or safe pressure capabilities to match what's needed as a minimum bead blast versus chosen tyre sizes running. Worthwhile calculating how much dollars needed too in high pressure fittings/hoses to safely connect up multiple smaller tanks under a wagon with limited space available.

    That and the fact there would be six extra failure points in the system.

    These blokes are pretty fast, but their method of seating the tyres is great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgvB1Ah5QE0
