ok so here it goes...some of you know i have gotten a set of train horns...I got them from Hornblasters.com. It is their Shocker system. Four horns, Viair compressor, Viair Tank, Dump selenoid, all the air lines i need, and all the stuff you need for the install....

I have started with the build of this. Today i started with mounting the compressor and tank and then i started to get the mounts for the horns themselves. The mount will sit under the rear of the FJ right in front of the rear cross member. it is 1/8" steel plate with the mounts welded to mount the horns. it will bolt under the truck using the hitch/"my bumper" mounting points...it will be very solid. The tank/compressor has been mounted in the side rear cubby taking the place of my rear cubby rack. it is mounted on a custom bent aluminum mount to make it actually sit level. here are the pics so far. I will add more and update as i go....

ok so i got a little more done today...painted the plate and then installed and plumbed all the horn/selenoid tubing ...here are some pics...

first pics are of the aluminum box i bent up and tig welded that will hold the selenoid












the plumbing from the air tank to the selenoid hasnt been run yet but its a somple honest plug and play...just have to make the routing so that there is no kink in the hose...then the wiring and switches and it will be done....

stay tuned

I thought of a great use for these yesterday... When you're in traffic at a railroad crossing, wait until someone's sitting on the tracks and, well, you can figure out the rest. Could be quite entertaining!

I get the feeling I'm going to want to wire that switch up at your house so my neighbors aren't too pissed at me. I also think I'll bring some ear plugs...
