Why not cover it in acoustic carpet ? or if you have carpeted the rear of the van and have some spare use that. Just a thought.

Well finally got round to fitting my air horns took it to TT1956 a member on the forum. Trev.
He fitted them to my expansion tank holder by drilling a 13mm hole and bolting it on then got a cb radio speaker bracket and fitted the horns. He then wired them all up using the diagram given and ran a live wire to and from the switch which he put in using a grommet hole in the engine. The switch was from maplins and is a momentary switch. £2.69p also I fitted my cb radio console in which iceman’s dad made for me with a bit of fiddling it fits nice but needs painting or covering. I drilled small holes in front the shape of Vw and fitted my cb speaker to the back of it. And then fitted a phone holder too. I will put a Vw sticker on front where the speaker is once painted. I know its not fibre glass or anything but it does the job. Hope this gives you some ideas where or how to fit a ir horns and cb console.







hope this helps see you all at campermart next week
