Bradex Extinguisher mounting bracket

by Toby » Thu Oct 12, 2017 6:59 pm

Does anybody have a fixing bracket for the Bradex extinguisher in v/good condition. This plastic coated bracket enables it to be fitted to the base of the drivers seat in the Interceptor

Is this for the Mk III?

I'm just wondering 'cos on my car (2241/9480) it didn't have a typical Bradex fire extinguisher (I'm thinking the long thin extinguisher that's like two or three Red Bull cans long), but mine had something a little smaller than a can of fly spray.

If originality is your goal, then maybe the smaller extinguisher is the right one - but then again, the longer Bradex's that I have seen on earlier cars look better!

Let me know if you'd like a photo of what was on mine,

Hi Dino,
This is the Bradex i have and need a bracket for. It is 9.5" Long X 2" diameter and i am told is the original one for the Interceptor and is fitted at the front of the drivers seat.

I apologies for the filthy state of my carpet and car. But this is my fitting.

Ps reminds me off a passing out parade when the senior inspecting officer commented that someone's shoes needed polishing. To which the cadet replied " I will tell my wife Sir"

Is that the original location or an alternative to fitting to the base of the drivers seat?

It's been there since 1990 - and so has the dirt by the looks of it :oops:

I hope others, having seen the photos, will now confirm or suggest an alternative.

I had exactly the same type of fittings but screwed instead to the front of the seat frame at the base.

That is the location i had understood to be the default, I am seeking the fixing where the clips are connected by a backing plate rather than individual clips

I don't know if Jensen ever used that kind of fixing, what I had was definitely original from the factory.

Hi everyone,

Here's the fire extinguisher that was fitted to my car when I bought it way back in 1989 - geez, I thought it was original, but then thinking about it, it probably was a replacement of sorts for the original Bradex extinguisher.

Funny thing that - brought my car with a fire in the engine bay, and THAT fire extinguisher was never used (yes, it's still full). But given the size of it, it wouldn't have done much!

BTW, it was fitted to a bracket under the drivers seat, which came forwards and bent up through 90 degrees at the front of the drivers seat as others have commented, so maybe the bracket was original, but the extinguisher wasn't?

Meh, sorry everyone for the bum steer (I learnt something after all of these years)!

I think these may have been fitted to the later cars Dino, I seem to remember this type in the convertible we have, unless I am going mad :?
