Default Hella Supertones...Pics of mounting brackets for WRX

Anyone have any pictures of exactly how, and to what, they mounted their Hella Supertones (for WRX). I pulled the grill, then most of the bolts up front, looking for a good place to mount the horns, but could not find a suitable location that allowed both horns to sit behind the grill. I was able to use one of the existing horn mounting locations on the vertical hood-release support. There are some extra holes in that support , but there's no room to slip a nut behind it...although I guess there is a way to remove the support to gain access. I assume most people created some sort of brackets. Anyone have some pics of how they mounted theirs?

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Extend the harness from the far left (driver side) horn to reach the passenger side of the middle verticle support brace. There's an unused, threaded hole you can use. The other horn mounts fine in the same location as OE on the driver side of the middle verticle support brace. No problems at all. 10 minute install.

Edit: If you need me to, I'll pull the grill and take some pics for ya!

That is exactly where I put mine! And used the factory wire as well.

Thanks for the pics MackDaddy...I tried a few bolts in that threaded hole, but didn't have one that fit. Any idea what the threading is on that bolt hole? Can I assume it's a Metric size and not an English one? Also, where did you run your grounds back to. Did you find a good enough ground at the central support, or did you run to the negative battery terminal, or elsewhere?

Lastly, When I ran the horns to the stock wires, I got a much lower than stock-volume out of them (no I wasn't running them in series). When I ran them direct to the battery to check them, they sounded fine (maybe my Supertones are pulling more current than the wires can supply...I cannot believe this, but who knows!). It seems that I'm going to have to use the relay. Anyone else run into this problem?
