anyone have clips of air horns or did a DIY setup?

im looking for ideas of what to do for air horns. i want them to sound like a bigass log truck. i think ill head dow to my local truck shop and see if they have a set off an old truck theyre parting, that i can buy off them. im just not sure what to do about a tank. i dont have a lot of money to throw into this project and i would like to keep it fairly simple. its either mount a tank under my bed, that i can fill with an air compressor, or buy an onboard pump. i have also seen an a/c compressor turned into an onboard pump. i want the valve on the roof too. anyone have any info they would like to share go for it! if you have any sound clips, please share them too.
thanks!

not a home made setup but it was only around 400 bucks, if your looking for videos type in train horns into youtube

studs,egr delete(sinister),dieselsite coolant filter, nuc oil bypass, dj's fuel + regulated fuel return, sct by eric, 4in silverline no cat, isspro gauges, cat elc coolant, hids, lots of other odds and ends......
