Thread: Another Heinzmann extinguisher replica unit

    Another Heinzmann extinguisher replica unit

    Thanks to great info and photos found here on Early S I am nearly done making a replica Heinzmann extinguisher that is slighlty smaller but roughly proportionate to the real unit. I used mostly hand tools (files) to make the valve. I use two old refillable solvent containers to make the tank.

    I still have to make the top shroud an am currently waiting on aluminium for that.

    Here are a few photos of the process. I used a thick tow hook as the base to carve out the valve.

    Kudos,
    I remember you asking for one a while ago, so respect for taking the action to build one yourself!

    I've got one already for my RSR rep, but just out of interest: Are you planning on making a series and selling, or was this pure for your own car?

    Thank you for the compliments.

    I enjoyed learning about these units and making this one but due to the amount of time required to make it I am not making any to sell.

    Nice !!

    Are you planning to reproduce the "diamond" aluminum plate cover to go over it ?

    Hi JD,

    I have not seen your cars around (I am in Montreal as well). Cool to know there is a 65 around!

    I am working on the cover at the moment. Ideally I would find a place to have the pattern machined out of a thick alloy sheet (that I have sourced already) and then bend to shape.
