Cams Approved Fire Extinguisher Bracket

Recommended Posts

Does anyone need a CAMS approved fire extinguisher bracket for their R33, R34 or Stagea?

CAMS scrutineers are currently cracking down on poorly mounted extinguishers. This bracket has recently passed CAMS scrutineering at Sandown and Philip Island. The comment made was “that’s what I like to see, nuts and bolts”

Because I couldnt find any for sale i developed my own and had a few extras made. The first batch have all sold quick to the VIC based guys so i am thinking about getting some more made if anyone is interested?? These will go for $90 ea inc M6 high tensile bolts and nuts. Postage is about $10 nationwide but will confirm with your postcode.

Suits R33, R34 platforms and also should fit M34 Stagea?

let me know if your keen?

Um, I thought they were all the same seeing as 33 seats fit the 32's etc etc.

Do the brackets definatelyn ot fit the 32's or is it just that they have not been tried as yet?

32 seats bolt into 32, 33, 34's even S13 and 14's (the two front bolts anyway, there IS subtle differences in the front to rear spacings), so I feel these are generic 90's Nissan RWD fire ext brackets.

R32 and S14 are a definate mate, my buddy ran around for years with my R32 GTR seats in his S14A. The outer rear bolts were about a bolt width out.

But R34 GTT floor pan is apparently different to R32 GTR GTST R33 GTR GTST R34 GTR for some reason.

I may be wrong, but,

Sucks to have a R34 GTT.

SORRY

On topic a bit more though now, it would need to sit at least 250mm from the front seat fixtures to the center of the extinguisher so it would clear the seat in my car, I've got short legs.

I'm liking this a lot as mine is now hose clamped to the ROPS behind my drivers seat, set up like this I could actually get at it without undoing the harness and climbing over the seat.

Safety x 11, good work.

So can the seat travel fully forward for when you forget to take the extinguisher out prior to letting you mechanic fix your car.

I'm pretty sure they would want the seat to go back, remember the " short legs " bit, the only person to want the seat more forward is my 10 yr old daughter.

pics below with the seat slid all the way forward, no issue on the R34GTR with standard seats. I know some after market seats have levers etc at the front which may be an issue. will get feedback from a few R33GTR owners who are running these already regarding this issue and post here.

planning to trial fit on some othe nissans soon........

Any of you R33 owners worries about running this bracket under your seat, there's nothing to worry about. I've been using this in the car the last couple of months, and I can tell you the fit is fantastic and It's sturdy. What's good is the bracket hugs the carpet and extends forward of the bolts giving ample room to move the seat.

I'm not a short bloke but I do sit fairly close to the wheel, and there's not clearance issues at all. Nor does it get in the way of operating the lever. I forgot it was even there and I use my car every day.

Here's a couple of photos in my R33 GT-R:

Oh, BTW on full tilt forward it slightly touches the extinguisher - But I think it's the way I bolted it, so depends on how you bolt up your extinguisher as mine sits out closer to the door than the centre of the car. Hope this helps.

Cheers

Steve.

C34 (except 2wd) has the same seat bolts as R32, R33, R34 4wd, so it should bolt in. I guess it depends if there is space where the bracket sits, but probably OK
