348 Challenge Internal Battery Pull and Extinguisher Pull Correct Placement

Post by Stradaleboy »

Hello all, I am a long time lurker first-time poster. I am currently in the process of preparing a 1992 348 Challenge. My principal question is what is the correct way to install the interior battery disconnect? From most period pictures I see the red battery "key" placed on the passenger side of the tunnel. It is my understanding from research that both the internal cable and the external cable are attached to the red battery "key" at this point with the external pull loop placed just below the windshield on the driver's side. I hope this is all correct if you believe it is not I am all for suggestions. My biggest question is where does the interior pull loop go on the driver's side interior? I am also struggling with the correct placement for the fire extinguisher pull to be placed? Any and all help is appreciated, I have truly fallen in love with the 348 Challenge during this project.

Do you have any pictures of where your pull is placed, that is within the drivers reach while fully harnessed in?

Thank you for all the pictures and information. It seems that there is no standardized placement for the interior pull. I would venture to say that this piece was left up to the driver's discretion. For judging sake, I am thinking as long as it is easily reachable and looks natural in the cockpit we should be safe. Any opinions guys?
