Default Air compressor weld/Fab complete

I finished up the compressor rebuild. I ended up buying a new tank, but the top plate and outlets are all different, so I had to build a new top plate and overlay the factory plate. I also had to swap the pump and the motor side to side due to the thread o let sizes and locations. I also made a new belt guard, relocated the start switch, and pulled all the old exhaust and changed it to a single nipple. It is much quieter now, all the rattling is gone.
