I have a 5lb Amerex ABC with no bracket and a 2.5lb Kidde BC with a plastic vehicle bracket.

I'm thinking neither is suitable and I should go find a new 2.5lb ABC with an all metal vehicle bracket.

Is there a good local source? And, where is a sensible place to mount it in a no roll cage baja?

Thanks!

I would probably mount it on the floor in front of the driver's seat. That way you can grab it on the way out, and it should be below the plane of the seat bottom.

As far as where to buy, I would think the plastic bracket will be ok inside the car. I bough an expensive all metal bracket that mounts to the cage.

The most important thing to remember about fire extinguishers is to use them on yourself and/or your passengers first, then worry about the vehicle after all the people are extinguished. That being said you can never have too much fire extinguisher. I'd rig up a mount for the 5lbs ABC somehow if it were up to me.
