x-mas tree

Post by Georg Weinstabl » Tue Jul 12, 2011 9:00 pm

Hi,

When I received my Volga from Georgia, I found two empty housings there, where once has been horns.

empty housings!
The design was very pure: two flat cylinders, very clean and very sobber. When looking at the earlier versions these had been more detailed. I do not want to say the earliers looked better, but I needed something like a horn and I did not want to have the typical flutes or sirenes that are installed on most runabouts.

So I made my way to a shop and purchased the typical US car horn of the 50ties and 60ties sold here as ''Chat-Chat''.

The design is a simple horn not very unlike the horizontal russian original however needed vertical installation. Against the odds I decided to turn this into a horizontal one, which required a special construction to be made.

White are purchased horns, red is the stainless steel construction for them.
Having done this I decided to go for the ''ship-like'' x-mas tree, which combines functions of visual and audible signs. What came out of this is nothing new ... it has been made on many runabouts before, but maybe is only another version of it.

There was no progress here for a longer time, as I was looking for suitable lamp.The search for a suitable marine projector was in vain. Most design were white, square, too big or too ugly. I found this projector from a 50 cc Mojito and it is plastic chrome coated. I assume that it will not rust atleast.
