Getting a real horn
One of the first farkles was to get a horn that would get cagers' attention. I first tried a Stebel Nautilus and built a bracket to mount it in place of the left side faux cover - click for details. After about 6 months we noticed that the chrome was coming off the horn and exposing the plastic and Catherine did not like the tone. So I got a set of the Stebel TM80 Magnums which for her is much better.

I mounted these to the tops of the engine guard so the trumpet pointed outward and down. I ran fused power and ground from the battery to the relay which I mounted behind the frame cross member above the top of the radiator.

|Left side front view. The horns are mounted so they are in same plain as the engine bars which keep them clear of Buck's lowers.||Right side - don't forget to check the clearance with the front all the way to the right.|
|Side view of the horn and bracket.||Top view - notice the offset in the faux cover's bracket. The bracket was custom made. The horn relay was mounted on the backside of the bracket - out of sight.|
