Look in the phone book for a local big rig shop, or some place like that... they carry lots of fittings. As far as knowing what fittings to get... just draw out your setup on a piece of paper, and write down what size ports you have on everything, and what size line is running to whereever, then you know what kinda fittings you need. I don't do it for anyone, because I feel they need to learn about this stuff before they dive right in on the install, without knowin anything. To help you out a lil tho, fittings for 5/8" line come with 3/8" NPT or 1/2" NPT threads, either in Straight connectors, or Elbow connectors.

As far as the wiring diagram... again, draw it out on a piece of paper... this is stuff, that if someone just gives it to you, you won't learn a damn thing about it, and when it comes time to fix it, or help someone else, you can't, because you don't know what is goin on. The switches come in 3 prongs, and 6 prongs, where each set of 3 prongs controls one bag, and 1 of the 3 prongs is a power wire.

NPT is the type of threading used on fittings. You can use the home depot compressions if you really want to, but I wouldn't recommend it, nor condone it. You can get a water trap from home depot if ya want, and just put it before the tank, after the compressor.
