Here's the rear tub in the flesh. It will house the compressor and the manifold nicely and be fully tucked away.

Nice! I've considered putting my battery back in one of those, but I'm not sure if it would interfere with my APR LPFP's mounting location.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't the lpfp under the rear bench on the passenger side? This mounts closer to the hatch in the trunk. The golf r has a plate back there that is covering the hole for this. Same with 8p generation A3's and Mkv r's

Nah, the APR LPFP mounts under the passenger side of the trunk on AWD cars. I haven't been under that area lately, but it may even use one or two of the fasteners that holds that plate on.

Here's a pic from one of APR's threads:

The black plate above this is the cutout for the tub. So it does look like this would be in the way. Maybe it could mounted elsewhere if you wanted to relocate the battery

Picked up and cleaned off the air struts that I'm going to be using. Purchased used and locally from a close friend, so they're well taken care of.

Added some sound proofing to the tub so it stays nice and quiet. The tub will house the compressor, manifold and my water trap.
