Re: Train Horn installed in my WK2

Im keen on getting the rear exhaust done soon, love to get his details. In the Toyota I had, the tank and compressor was at the rear and the trumpets were at the front in behind the grill. I am keen to do the same set up with the Jeep. Putting the trumpets in the Toytoa behind the grill was easy, did not even need to make any brackts, but looks like the Jeep i will have to. Looks likes there is room at the back of the Jeep without needing to remove anything but just want to start work on the trumpets first.

Victor1960, do you have any close up photos of the brackets?

I have the same kit as you and just trying to see how you mounted the trumpets.

Did you weld brackets?
Yes, I used some small plastic brackets but just attached them, didnt need to weld anything on the front.
Since mine is a V6 I had room for the compressor and air tank in the front.
So far I've had it for over 6 months and working very well, no issues with heat or anything.

Any chance you have photos of the clips or a link to a website?

Re: Train Horn installed in my WK2

Hi MC,

Sorry, dont have more pics other than the ones posted, and the brackets were purchased here locally so I dont have a web site for them, I can tell you they are firm and steady, I wish I could help more but I dont want to take down the whole front again to take closeups of those items, sorry.
Anyways, good luck, and post pics as soon as you have it installed.

Re: Train Horn installed in my WK2

Would the air from the Quadra-Lift be sufficient? If not for the Hornblasters, what about lesser air horns? Anyone tapped this air source?

Qudra Lift is a Nitrogen filled closed system. Parts and service are expensive on it, best to leave it alone.
