Other Extras

Worn-out Swiss Army school backpack was suitable to throw away, but many unusual features of this bag, which I decided to use, intrigued me. This way, I got a grab handle; I used a number of straps to form a special fire extinguisher mount. Internal pocket can serve as a handy storage for small items under the steering wheel. Also, very handy are backpack’s side pockets as well as internal compartments.


Rear Grab Handle

The backpack’s handle can be used as a grab handle. The installation was very easy and consisted of using the existing bolts.


Fire Extinguisher Mount

To mount the fire extinguisher I used several strips cut from the backpack. I have sewn them together to keep a fire extinguisher in an almost vertical position. In order to attach the extinguisher to the roll bar, I used two extra wide Velstraps (Velcro straps).


Driver's Storage Pocket

Using Velcro fasteners, I attached backpack's inner lockable pocket under the steering wheel. It serves perfectly as a place for wallet, sunglasses, or other small items.


Rear Storage Pockets

I attached two backpack’s side pockets on both sides of the rear window. They serve as easy access location for gloves, cloth, automotive pressure gauge, etc.
