Good Afternoon All Wise and Nimble,
I have finally arranged and installed the Stebel Airhorn. WOW, it is cool, it is loud and it work. The instal was interrupted by the chore of rewiring the accessories:the Rigid Lights, the power cable to the battery. I took the time to redo these items correctly. I rerouted the wiring and redid the connections properly, with shrink tubing on all perminent connections. I exposed the fuses for easy access. Now back to the Stebel. This thing is big and akward. It would not fit anywhere that I could see or imagine. So....I tore it apart or separated the pump from the horn. Now I had two pieces that could fit in a multitude of locations. The pump went behind the radiator coolant reservoir attached to the reservoir frame. The actual horn needed to be somewhere in front. I had the idea of it smoothly going in beside the headlight. It di not go so smoothly. I had to wrestle wit the location and placement of the horn.
To wrap up this rant, I used the invaluable plastic zip tie to attach the horn up inside the front fairing so that the trumpets pointed out through the fairing mesh (see picture) It is nicely placed and it does not interfere with the sound projection and the sound is projected forwards not sidewards. Upon replacing the fairing I noticed that it is ever so slightly askew. This is fixable with a little adjustment to the zip ties.
I am very pleased as i accomplished three projects in one. It looks and sounds great. Next project: Dashboard.
Life is a ride that should be thouroughly enjoyed. ATGATT!
