another horn retrofit
« on: July 11, 2016, 09:37:05 pm »
I mounted 2 standard electric car horns a month ago.  All is going well with the install so I thought I would share.  I used a low and a high note complimentary car type electric horns.  These are the aftermarket type that Flamm and others make.  I mounted one on the original horn location and the other on the back side with an included (in my horns) mounting plate.  I have pictures and will post them as well.  The fit nicely and are not affected by heat from the exhaust header.  The only mod I made from the original install was to move the relay.  I originally mounted it quite low.  It filled with water and I just replaced it and mounted it to a through clip on the air baffle attached to the radiator.  I will try and post the pictures now.

Thank you.  You need to mount the relay out of the way of water.  Unless you get a waterproof one.  Found out when it stopped working.
