ARB compressor location?

I have for the last time spent an hour using a plug in cigeratte lighter air pump to air my tires back up. I am wanting to install a arb compressor. My question is where have most of you put yours? I am later planning to install lockers so that has to fall into my plan too. Include pictures too.
Thanks

Hopefully you got the big one as the regular one is really slow. There are better bangs for the buck if doing an electric compressor.

I have the ARB single - it works but is kinda slow but gets the job done- i would recommend getting either the ARB Twin or a York.

however the single ARB fits nicely in the passenger side cubby box along with the ECU on A 95 NAS 90 with room left over for the hose and other gear.
I do not have an AMP for the stereo as well. so its just a blank space.

or you could fit it behind the pass seat (Single or twin) or in a troy box in the rear.. lots of possibilities

Viair 400. It does look like their prices have gone up and the ARB has come down, so it is not as cut and dry as it once was.

Under my left wing, mounted on to of the inner fender next to the power panel, beneath the blank off plate. Mounted it on a piece of angle with some spacers so it would remain level.

Thought I'd throw this into the mix. I made this larger storage area to accommodate the twin pump, tank and manifold for locker solenoid's. No deeper than stock just longer. Compressor filters went out back of the box. Easy to clean/pop off from underneath. The output from the tank goes out the back and down to the frame for distribution to front rt headlight bezel. I bent up 1/2" stainless for more storage capacity. I can air up 4 tires before others with the smaller pumps can air back up one.
I made patterns and templates by the way. I used .032 5052 aluminum and worked just fine. .040 would work real well too. I'm always fussy about weight.
