I look forward to the reply, as it sounds a great idea.... however, this site suggests that prices start at $2000:

They can be far cheaper than that- this one would do engine bay-fuel tank area and cabin to protect driver.
Probably someone on forum may know how to make one.
My race car had one with connection to extinguisher and leads to engine bay etc and was set off by solenoid switch- a big red button.

Welcome to the KK Forum- we have listed Love My Bus on here since Oct 2006 and a few of your members have posted on here.
The BWM has been on and off but had idea Schomee was going to get it going again

Hi All
Im supprised i havent seen Phillia in here as i have supplied one for him. Maybe it has not been fitted yet as i too am waiting on pictures.

This system is a FireFlex. 1kg bottle with horizontal mounting or verticle mounting available. Fitting is simple as it requires the bottle to be mounted then just run the 4m flex hose across the engine bay headliner a couple of times. The hose will heat up and melt at the Hot spot and hopefully extinguish the fire before it generates too much heat. I have also been looking at a Specific built system for kombis with Warning lights on the dash and remote switching as well. There is a guy near me who builds simple systems used on the Touring Cars and are Cams Approved.
If there was enough interest i could get busier on it.
 Thanks Jamie
