My Horn Sucks....

Sound like a clown horn and I think there's a bunch of dirt in it or something. It's all muffled and gay.

Any train horns for sale? I need to get a better horn installed, how hard is it?

Uh. Mine only works when it feels like, ask the people who were at Inverness on Saturday. It's so quiet, stupid thing almost got me stranded because no one could hear my honking when I was stuck.

Get a big train horn, now!

I am going to have a tutorial for the Hornblasters kit with a bunch of pictures and video clips too. It will be put together and posted either this week or early next week.

This is the kit

A set up like these vids, using semitruck horns, will run about $300.

I want electric air horns like on a fire truck. I don't want to mess with a compressor, there is enough stuff in my bed taking up space as is.

Same here, for some reason if I jiggle it around enough and hit it hard a few times I can get it to work. I'll be able to use when I get out of my truck an then the next time I get in the truck it will have stopped working again. My truck is being a bit of a ***** right now (sshhhhh don't tell her I said it though), ignition broke and after I washed her all up and was putting her to work. She loves that stuff but I think I may have looked at some 4 cylinder cars to much for her liking.
