Thinking and planning

The extinguisher system has arrived and this is where I will fit it.

The external push button will be next to the electric pull switch.

I will locate the extinguisher bottle where the battery tends to be lcoated in a TR7V8. It is preferred by the mSA that it is iftted in a fore and aft position and here it will be close to the triggering switch so that should help wiring a bit.

In addition it's a fair distance away from the wing should it be pushed in (gulp) but not too close to the spare wheel where it might get damaged lifting the spare in and out.

Fire extinguisher ordered

Next bit of the puzzle - should arrive this week.

So, then it's a question of putting it all together and BRP will be pretty much ready.

Just a quick look

Here's the harnesses just lodged in to see how they look.

Pretty cool I reckon.

Meanwhile, finally fixed the exhaust on the Toledo so we seem all OK for the HCR!
