    That looks great! Yours looks so much more tucked away making it look better than in other pictures I've seen floating around.

    So is your whole "bracket" just those two v braces, and that's what the holder is bolted to?

    I managed to figure out how to remove the cap. There are two pins inside of the handle, you push them out and the cap comes off. The problem I'm having now is to find someone who can refill this type of extinguisher. I've sent an email to Gloria, hopefully they can tell me where to go or what sort of attachment I can purchase to make it work.

    @NoQuarter, did you ever figure this out for the Z4? I suspect you would have kicked a thread if you had. Curious how far you got.

    Right... Never got back to it. Still have everything sitting in the cabinet.

    I think all that is needed is a simple flat plate as an adapter but my metal fab skills and tools is pretty disappointing.

    If I attempt again, I will start with aluminum instead of steel and probably remove the seat to fit it on the bench.
