This is exactly where I have mine. You are on the right track, fasten it so that it does not slide forward when you brake hard. I have a 5 lb. Halotron extinguisher there. It does not make a powdery mess when used. Do not use in an enclosed area. I bought mine at West Marine. They seemed to have the best price, $230 and free shipping. Not exactly cheap, but a lot cleaner if you ever need to use it.

I have watched several really nice cars (not Model A's) burn up the entire engine compartment for lack of an extinguisher. A real shame.
