permanent installation of compressed air hose reel in 390bh

Has anyone installed a compressed air hose reel on a 390bh to facilitate the easy filling of tires. I have been kicking around the idea of installing a 50ft reel in the front compartment (generator drawer).

Any thoughts?

We toyed with the idea of putting in a air hose and reel but instead opted for a portable pancake compressor. They're not all that expensive and they do fit in the basement bays without any major issues. We find that having the portable unit allows us much more use of the compressor and we always carry regular extension cords so it's pretty easy to set the compressor up where it is needed with a short air hose.
