Horn Location?

Post by Mr. Detail » Mon Jan 06, 2020 6:55 am

Happy New Year to all!
Fun question here but thus far after crawling under and over the front end, I still cannot find where the horns are on my wagon. I bought a twin set of PIAA super loud horns a long time ago and they are still sitting on my garage shelf. Can anyone lead me to at least an approximate area where the present ones could be accessed?
Thanks! :)

Your replacement horns should be B and G# if your want your car to stay in tune.

abscate, not sure what you mean by "B & G#". Do you mean that the new horns should be labeled or imprinted
with the letters "B" and 'G"?

Musical notes - and my usual bad atonal humour.

A Minor Third, to boot. I wonder if I can patch my roof with that perfect pitch?

I have read there is a relationship between musical and engineering skills, but I seem to be tone deaf and can't hear the idea. :D
