After getting my bus inspected by California Highway patrol(<<<< i cant bang my head enough).... (DMV. )

** it is time to install these dam air horns. Me being hypochondriac i am, i tore down my air horns, bored, drilled & tapped them out for a 1/4 npt. The louder the better..
So i can mount them individualy.
I want to push more psi to my horns, so i got a pressure regulator so i can increase the psi.

** a couple two way air splitters & fittings later.
The pressure switch, my air bags & my stock horn i swaped to an air horn is going to run off one block.
the four horns are running from the quick disconnect to the other block , i still need a few more fittings but its almost their.












* i got these to replace the stock horns awhile ago but they suck,
so i got another pressure regulator to delete the compressor it came with & run it off my large tank. And bump up the psi to those as well.

Just make sure that the line supplying air pressure to your horns is isolated from the rest of the system.

The last thing you want to happen when you honk your horns is for something else in the system to lose air pressure.

It would be a bit of a problem if every time you honked your horn your air bags deflated.

**Twigg. I hope it works. I hope i dont slab off, my dresser top. Next is kichen top.

I finally got it all installed & was able to test & run leak check, My dad as usual helped me wire the thing up cause i have know freakin idea about electrical.
**The problems i had were, compressor was not shuting off & safety valve kept blowing. Took pressure switch off first thinking that was the problem, it was my safty valve i ordered a 225psi burst valve they sent me a mothersucking 125psi, so i have to wait for new one, another isssue is i didnt put a( on/ off )valve before the 3/8 swival quick disconnect so i will be ordering & adding one of those. Live & learn..
