I can't post pics from my phone because "I'm a stupid". And I didn't take pics till the fire was out because "I was busy".
Guessing trans overflow or similar. Only wet around passenger header and not currently dripping but trans started to slip immediately before flames came shooting out. I was cruising at 55ish without my windshield so I couldn't hear any issues. Next thing I know, fireball.
Scary shit.

Bummer! That sucks, to go fire ball while cruising verses wheeling.
IIRC Killerb did the same thing, but while wheeling.

I had that happen, only I forgot I had an extinguisher on me. I blew it out by the time my passenger got there with the extinguisher.

Hopefully not too much damage!

He's fine.

He streaked into my driveway like a meteor entering the atmosphere and we put the fire out with Pabst.

So here's a question.....what kind would you get? I'm not fond of the 29.95 Kidde Home Depot specials.
I have some old Halon's that I've carried and need to reorder them as they are expired also. ~$120.00 for a 1.25 lb unit
I also have a new 'wet water' rechargable extinguisher I'm planning on carrying but can't find any more canisters as the guy I purchased them from passed away and his business folded, he was a one man show. It's filled with a special fire extinguishing agent and then pressurized with nitrogen. I have 5 gallons of that material which is immune from freezing so it oesn't have the same drawback as just plain water. Anyone heard of this type?
