Dixie Horn Wiring

I had to disconnect my dixie horns when I put a new bed on my truck, i have them mounted on the side of the toolbox. Anyway I was gonna re wire everything cause I didn't like how I had done it before. I didn't take the time to tag all the wires so I would know where they went. I want to hook them up again but forgot what goes where

The set has the 5 or 6 horns, an electric compressor, and a relay. Anybody put a set on their truck that still has directions that you can scan an image and send to me?

Can I bypass the relay or is the relay used to tell which horn to fire?

Figured its a long shot but worth it.

Thanks,
Sam

The way mine is wired up, I have no relay on it. It is just a wire from the battery to a switch then a wire from the switch to the compressor and then a wire off of the compressor to a ground.
