Mounting Fire Extinguisher Help

I found a neat, 3 lbs chrome fire ext that I want to mount on the left rear panel above the rear wheel. (see pic #1)

The panel is made of that thick plastic (poly-whatever you call it!) and I need some advice on how to mount it to the panel.

The back of the extinquisher has 6 mounting holes that are pretty well spaced out, but what will hold in the plastic? - Sheetmetal screws, etc.

Any help would be greatly appreciated....


PIC #1 Where I want it....


PIC #2 What I thinkl it will look like.....

Take the panel off and mount with either a backing plate or even easier use bolts with large washers. You don't want some loose cargo hanging up on it and one of those screws pull out or worse crack the panel.

I'd use some large washers to distribute the load. IMO.

I would LOVE to get behind the panel, but I have looked and looked and looked and I'll be darned if I can figure out how it comes off.

I found a PDF file that shows how to remove the panel, but WOW, it is more involved than I thought! I may have to rethink the location of the extinguisher...........

I recently took an interest in this as well.
Let us know what you try out.

I know there are also some hitch mounting options with a gas can.
