Passing light switch rewire for Stebel

Has anyone thought of rewiring the passing light switch for a Stebel and maintaining the factory horn functionality at the same time? I have not done any electrical work, but have thought this would be a good solution for those considering the Stebel.

Thoughts?

It wouldn't be difficult to do, but in my opinion a better solution is to throw the piece of crap factory horn in the nearest river.

I think it's be easier to wire the stock horn to the passing light switch. I'm guessing you want the meep-meep for communicating so a little flash of the high beams would actually help.

I also think that this would be a better option if you were going to use the passing light switch with a horn.

you could also wire the stebel and factory horn in together, unless you just want two different horns

Has anyone done this yet??? If so, what color are the wires to the passing switch and where did you access them?
