Go to the website that I posted. Everything is there.

You will need:

1. A lid if yours doesnt have one.

2. Posts; These are the connetions on top of the tank. You can either go pin lock or ball lock. Ball lock is better. You will need one for liquid (out) and one for air (in).

3. 1 post fitting for air, and 1 for liquid.

4. 10'-15' of hose. Use the nylon ID hose. like 150 psi max. Its pretty stiff, but that is good because it wont kink.

5. A sprayer nozzle (Film dist. or Filmhandler.)

6. Air compressor.

NOTE: You must make sure you know what kind of tank you have. The posts are unique for each type of tank I.e. Firestone, Cornelius, etc.

I have a 5 gallon tank, I use baby shampoo for slip, I squeeze in about 1/3 rd of the bottle into 5 gallons of water, so a large bottle of baby shampoo last for about 3 to 4 fill ups of the 5 gallon tank for me.

Its not necessarily a BEER keg. but people who do home brewing use old COKE kegs for dispensing the beer. The guys who have the most stuff for the kegs is home beer brewing stores.

As far as slip solution, its diff for everybody. I personally only fill mine up about 1/2 way. Unless I have a large job to go on, then I'll fill it completely. At 1/2 way I will just do 2-3, 1 sec squirts. You really dont need that much for a CDA film. After a while you will get the hang of it.
