Air Horns For The Beast

I had an old set of red trumpets, but didn't have the compressor. So when I decided to replace the stock horn, I bought another set of the red air horns. I couldn't figure out any reasonable way to make the shorter horn fit properly. So I installed both of the long horns. They do sound different because they're the same but trust me, they're loud. Also, I really like the way they look,and, they are in exactly the right place for horns to be (my opinion). I'll get some bug screens made soon.

The only place I found to mount the compressor is in the tray under the passenger seat. The last pic shows a really good place to mount 2 electrical relays.

No tank needed, just the horns, relay, compressor, air lines, and some electrical connections.

They're really loud and they're tucked in under the beak so tightly I don't see a problem with them getting in the way.

I ordered the bracket from AdventureTech, and the lights are from Auxbeam. VERY bright

You may want to add some sort of screen over them to keep bugs et all from clogging them up. That looks like it would be a bitch to clean out.
