Mate, you can get them with mounts to bolt on under the front seat mounting bolts so that they sit flush underneath the front of the passenger seat. A few people are able to get them, try sending a pm to either wulos or tickford2001.
Mine is installed under the drivers seat - it's a tight fit using a standard CAMs approved bracket but there is clearance for the seat.
You will find in most event supplementary regs a requirement that the extinguisher be within reach of the driver while seated in a normal belted position. I've seen scrutineers knock back cars with them mounted on the passengers side and I would be inclined to do the same.
I note in the 2004 MoMS that this requirement has been dropped but I still see it is used in a lot of Supp Regs.
I'm 6'6" tall. I could reach a fire extinguisher mounted under the passenger seat in a normal seated position :). Russ, I currently don;t have the Cams manual, the only requirements I was aware of are :
- At least .9 Kg
- Metal bracket
I've purchased a fire extinguisher that meets those requriements, what else is there ?
Thanks guys, I wasn't aware of a Ford option for extinguishers. Funny though, I've got brochures on options from about 6 months ago and they don't list it at all.
