trying to build a cheap on board air

I just got my superflow Mv-50 (Masterflow 1050 to some) today. It puts out 2.5 cfm and I tested it out by airing down a tire and airing it back up with the compressor. I have to tell you, for 62 dollars this thing rocks! I haven't timed it yet, but it aired up my 31's from 15psi back to 38 really quick. I did alot of research on this unit before I bought it and alot of people think it is made identical to a viair. Anyway, i am going to hardmount the compressor and hook up a tank to it. I need some help trying to figure out what else I will need to hook everything else up. I know I will need a tank, pressure switch, safety valve, manifold, and various couplers and adapters. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what else I will need?

FYI run your tires around 28-30 psi and thank me for saving your back. To run the compressor you can find the install kits instructions online maybe somebody has them on here they can lend up.

They had them at sams for a little over 50 bucks, but I got mine from amazon for 61 or 62 plus shipping.
