    I use one of these brackets. Have had it for several years and love it. It can be bought at Grainger for 35-40 bucks.Mounting ideas

    Here is the mount, its basically some 3" angle iron with some strap that can be found at home depot. I bent it around the shape of the tank and its weled on one side to the angle iron. Then the tank is put in and it wraps around to the other side where there is another piece. The 2 pieces are held together with a bolt and a wing nut.
    Well im sure a pic can tell 1000 words :)

    Yeah, I've been crazy bussy for about a year. I've got a little free time again, so I'll be wheeling again soon. First, I've got to get about 1000 things done around the house, but soon enough... I finished the big one already-fixing my new to me DD. After i clean out the garage, I'll be able to work on the K5 again! Hopefully, I'll see you guys soon!

    No a co2 system, that some use an an onboard air system to refill tire, and some can run an air tool with co2.

    no2 or "nos" to some is very different and only use by a very small number of people here

    Mine is mounted using an extinguisher bracket, vertically against the passenger side wall. I bolted it to the wall by removing the rear tail light as an access 'port' to the inside of the panel. Remember to use suitable grade hardware to resist shearing in the event of an accident.
