Buick Grand National Fire Extinguisher

buick grand national fire extinguisher 1I saw someone else do this to their fire extinguisher and thought it was a pretty cool idea.

And since lots of neat ideas come from other peoples inspirations & creations (“imitation is the most sincerest form of flattery? …”), I decided to make my own version of this to put in the 1987 Buick Grand National.

.

Remove the safety label(s) & clean off the glue residue.

.

Make sure the entire surface is clean & smooth, lightly sand if need be.

I took some turbo 6 arrow decals and layered them onto the bottle (just for a different kind of look, as opposed to using a solid arrow, or the 2-colored Buick GN arrow).

Total time for completion:
