Default A/C compressor to air compressor conversion

Does anyone know how to turn the A/C compressor into an air compressor to run my air bags?

If you go with other model that are not self contained Id suggest running 2 inline oil/water traps ( from what I have seen it works well.)

I did this with the stock Sanden on my old Mazda. I hooked the clutch on the compressor up to a switch on the dash. My compressor had a meaty aluminum manifold on it. I tapped the holes to accept NPT thread fittings.

An oiler on the inlet and separator on the outlet are ideal. I just sprayed some WD40 down mine now and then.
