I'll be getting a new Volvo 860 in the next few months. While some may think it blasphemy and an insult to train horns to have one put on a Volvo I would like to get one where is the best place to mount it. Any tips would be appreciated, would a normal mechanic shop be able to do it such as a speedco or something.

Just an fyi
I have a set on my Peterbilt and the parts that came with the horns for air we’re not large enough
I went with a 1/2 airline from the tank to an electric solenoid and have it on my dash toggle switch
Work great and fires up the horns as fast as you can hit the toggle
The factory solenoid was small and the horns would fire slowly
Not sure about Volvo but I put mine on my catwalk side step facing the ground
