One item, though, that I discovered during my engine bay clean-up was the dirty/oxidized condition of the OEM horn, which is actually two horns - one for high pitch and the other for low pitch which together generate the following sound:
During my "engine bay refresh" I discovered that the horns, while they still work without issue, looked horrible.
|The "lo-tone" one on the right, I sprayed with Rust-o-leum paint as an experiment.|
So of course I did some research, and found someone in Japan who was even more OCD than me:
This guy tested over 70 car horns, mainly aftermarket. As a result, I decided to stick with a Nissan aftermarket part, the "Nissan Sports Horn." The one I found was offered as an accessory for the Z34 Fairlady Z car.
|So I ordered and a few days later...|
|Each one comes wrapped up like this.|
|As you can see, much larger than OEM.|
|And the horn elements are encapsuled in a nautilus shaped black plastic|
|Interesting, grounding by way of the bracket and bolt does NOT work with the Z34 horn. At least when I tried.|
So what do people think? Yes, not one of my best posts, but I think when you see the before and after photos of what I've done, you might be impressed. Patience my friends as I get around to taking Speedhunter quality final photos...
