forgive the invasion from the mk6 side of things, folks. i figured this mod on my mk6 GTI was worth sharing since it should fit and work well for mk7 platform. If you don't already have an extinguisher, having one is piece of mind in the event my car catches fire or i encounter one while out and about.
Since I mounted my small extinguisher in the rear of my car I really wanted to have something in the forward cabin for mor immediate emergencies. Since I am vehemently anti-ECS, I stayed away from the extinguisher mount from Rennline since they are exclusively an ECS product line now. I stumbled across KAP Industries
out of Australia, and their mount looked pretty sturdy and essentially equivalent to competition previously mentioned. Plus the pricetag was more attractive.
The brace showed up and I confirmed it would potentially fit the daily which has stock seats. After that I immediately installed:
I ordered this extinguisher from amazon,
any 2.5kg extinguisher should fit fine, I bought this one because it came with a bracket and a quick release. Bolting that up was a piece of cake.
Depending on the extinguisher and placement you'll need to bend the bar so it sits properly for access and seat sliding. But I am happy with the look and function here! The KAP website has an install DIY video, real easy to follow. But for the love of god do not use a torque wrench as a ratchet/breaker bar, as they did.
But here's some links for you all..
