Where did you mount the VIAIR system? Are you able to run air tools from the compressor?

Same question here. I want something LOUD. Something that sounds like a real train.

I was going down the HWY today (65 mph speed limit) and came up on two guys riding side by side. Talking. Doing 20. Never wanted a set of horns so bad in my life.

I wanted something different so I went for a pair of 29" big rig horns. They fit the bill. I figure I may end up throwing a set of train horns on as well to have a choice (wire in a solenoid to switch between them). I am very happy with my setup. I have the compressor and tank under the passenger side and I mounted the horns under the drivers side. I had to fabricate some brackets and drilling the frame can be a pain. But, I enjoy the opportunity to really get someone's attention. There are some young kids that give me the old horn sign when I drive by their bus stop so I let it rip and they smile!

Before I installed the air tank, I coated with two more coats of paint and a coat of clear coat. It's not rusting (I live in PA where we get something like 8 months of winter with salt on the roads LOL! Ok...maybe just 6 months).

My compressor and 1 2.5gal tank are mounted to outside passenger frame rail. And have a second 2.5 gal tank in toolbox in bed. Where I have a coupler fitting with short coil hose.

I also ran a coupler fitting to rear bumper where I can connect a long hose to air up tires on truck, trailers and run power tools.

5 gal of 200psi air can run my 1/2 drive air gun to loosen a set of lugnuts on one wheel until it looses air pressure, then compressor fills tank quick enough to torque lugs back up when new wheel is in place.

Or can blow my train horn consistently for a 1.5 minutes haha
