Acura Tire Reinflation System/12V Air Compressor.

Hi Swappo! This is my first time posting here, so bear with me if I botch this up.
I have the absolutely mint tire reinflation kit that came in Acura TSXs from 2012 to the end of their production run. It's so mint, I haven't even peeled back the label covering the owner's manual.
Pictured is the owner's manual under the label. Haven't read it, but it's there.
Please ignore my toenail... I need to cut it...
This thing is super well packaged and organized. As long as you wrap the tubes as you found them, it'll fold back right every time (I mean, it hasn't been used since first put in the car in 2012. That's 9 years for the chords and tubes to mold and fold into place.
The air-only compressor works, and the gauge is accurate while filling the tires (maybe a few PSI above, as the gauge, doesn't show you the tire's pressure unless you're actively filling it with air).
Full disclosure, I didn't test the sealant. The rubber looked crack-free, but I refrained from releasing the goo in case it leaked and ruined the device.
Speaking of goo, it's expired, which means it's next to worthless anyway.
If you'd like to purchase this air compressor in hopes of fixing it you're more than welcome to. That'd require getting the tank out and switching it with a new one (which is probably something you can do, but I didn't look into that), then making sure the seals are all good. It's been buried under the trunk and away from the sun, so I don't think there'd be an issue... but honestly, I'd just buy this as a 12V air compressor and forget the goo even exists.
I'm asking $25 and for the buyer to cover shipping (whatever that ends up being. It will be shipped from Orlando Florida, so take that into account). Seems reasonable to me, as most 12V air compressors are sold for that anyways. So you're buying an air compressor and getting the expired goo for free!
PM me on the site. My response time may be slow, but I'll do my damnedest to answer any questions I can as quickly as I can!
There's a money shot. Maybe that'll make you want it more
