Re: Train horn install

Yea the horns are my favorite. The wrap draws 'em in and the remote blows the train horn for the finish.

Re: Train horn install

Just in case you failed to notice, in the picture of the air hose, there is a missing lugnut on that wheel.

How does the train horn sound?

yea i know i had my front tire unbolt while driving a while back, could only find five and i never went got the lugs, thats what i get for letting a shop do something.

One Word: LOUD

but the horn sounds freaking amazing, makes your clothes vibrate. i cant blow it at my sisters school cuz i already had the school cop person warn me.

Dude, seriously? Lugnuts are not something you really want to be skimping on. Loosing a wheel is a VERY, VERY ugly situation.

I'm dying to get a set of Nathan K5's, just not happening anytime soon.
