Trying to place the triangle, toolkit?

This is how I mounted my fire extinguisher and first-aid kit. The audio wires are hidden under the carpeting and fastened down, the CD changer bracket serves as a base, and I fashioned a mounting plate to hold the fire extinguisher.



The spare is in my basement, although I did use it recently (long story).

The question now is where to place the warning triangle and toolkit roll? Carrying the former is mandated by law, the later does come in useful. I like a clean look.

No no no. I don't want anything loose or anything taking up more space than it has to. That's why the extinguisher and first-aid kit are now mounted.

I'm now thinking of placing the toolkit and triangle at the back of the rear trunk and affixing them in some way. The only other item I carry there during fall/winter/spring is a big umbrella.

Oh, and sometimes, during the winter, this...



Yes, that's a Porsche sled.

That sled will come in handy when you get a flat.
Here's a thought: put the spare back in, then you'll have a spot for the toolkit
