[quote='75 308 GT4 (Peter)]Okay, for some reason, I can't upload the pictures of the extinguisher mount, the site says: "the attachment is too big, max size: 200kb" and each picture is no bigger than 120kb (some way less).
I'll take a look at it right away. I had to change it to upload the wallpapers.
I know the Halon extinguishers have been a bit pricey lately. I found a source near me for 2.5 lb Amerex Halon extinguishers for $129.95 which includes the quick release bracket. Their stock is pretty fresh as well. I saw nothing older than 3/02 there. I've seen them as high as $160-180.
I feel as you do, Peter and Ed, that it's a good idea to have one of these in the car at all times.
Anyone interested can e-mail me for further information.
Your seatside mount is more secure and accessible than the one referenced in the site that I had posted. I'm sure it's nice to have some peace of mind when your out in what for you is truly a labor of love.
You bet Barry. After all that hard work, I'd hate to see anything bad happen to it.
No one looks more stupid, than one standing by the side of the road watching their car go up in flames...
Since I work on repairing tanker trucks, we had once a driver in having his trailer repaired and he told us a story, where he was filling up a gas station, a guy drove up with flames coming out from under the hood of his car. The guy ran out of the car to the truck driver: "Hey man, you got a fire extinguisher?!?".
Well, the truck driver went absolutely livid, he screamed at the guy: "GET THE **** OUTTA HERE, I'M DROPPING 5000L OF GAS HERE, GO, GO, GO!!!!".
True story... Fortunately, the guy had the sense to roll the car out of the gas station and into a parking lot, far away from the tanker truck. Could you imagine if that thing caught fire?...
