When Steve Smith and his dad built theirs they built a box attached to the back of the seats and it looks like it belongs there and then ran the hoses in copper I think so they looked like something that should be there only used flex hose where they needed to, only way you would know it was a gas gun is before every shot you hear it hissing.
