Train Horns on a Yaris

Why? Because I can LOL
I will go over a few of the details. I have to say that for a kit that doesn't use a massive air tank and isn't $500+ I am very happy and impressed.

I wanted the horns to not be visible, and the compressors need to be mounted as far from the engine as possible. Seeing as the yaris engine compartment is short on room, i decided to mount the horns on the steel bumper reinforcement and the compressors/relays on the plastic panel next to the radiator. For the horns I used one of the existing holes on top of the bumper and drilled a hole on the bottom, and mounted the horn themselves on an aluminum bar.

for the two compressors I drilled and mounted them on the outside of the plastic panel. On the backside i used an aluminum bar to help brace the plastic. I ended up having to trim the bumper cover some, but this can be avoided if you mount the compressors lower than I did. Measure twice cut once, do as I say not as I do

I mounted the relays on the backside, ran my wiring and air lines. For power I chose to buy a separate distribution block for boats. I wired the button up and ta da! Done

And a quick clip
