Plumbed in fire extinguisher nozzles locations

Hi All

I've purchased a plumbed in fire extinguisher but want to check where's best for the nozzles? I've had a look at a couple of the race car builds. I'm guessing two along the bulkhead area and two at the front with one of these aiming at the fuel rail?

Also with the ones on the plate at the back that covers the wipers mechanism & heater bits. Did you drill a hole and then simple screw the nozzle con back on to the nozzle to secure it?

The engine bay looks like this ATM so I can go where ever is best without to much hassle

Just on with me extinguisher set up on the Twingo. Do you have a 4 or 6 nozzle system? In the instructions I got with my system it's one into each of the footwells and 4 in the engine bay basically one in each corner facing into the middle.

I got mine second hand so don’t have the instructions. I can/will google them.

I was just seeing if there’s any good/easy places with the 182 to save time or to get better coverage should it go off. Mines a 6 nozzle btw

This may help with the placement.

I’ve got one over each headlight on brackets pointing inwards at fuel rail and two on the firewall each side over the brake fluid reservoir and beside the expansion tank.
Then inside the car I have another 4, all pointing into the foot wells
Can take a few pics if it helps.

depends if your racing or rallying for the inside specs but for inside basically aimed at face and balls for engine bay aimed at fuel system i.e injectors and or fuel lines but the more the merrier again all depends how many nozzles you have

Cheers, i’ll Have a look through your build thread and see if I can see the ones at the front. I’ve seen the ones at the back. Do the water lines get in the way of the wiper mechanism?

I didnt install mine, but can see the logic and agree with its locations. It has 2 jets, one comes thru the bulkhead, runs along the top of the battery/ecu brace then turns and sprays to wards the fuel rail. The other goes to the column and sprays towards drivers foot well.
