Step 1: Gathering Materials
For the first step you will need to procure a fire extinguisher, a vehicle tire valve, some fuel, some sort of air pump, a drill with a 1/2 inch bit, and a file
Step 2: Prepping the Valve Hole
Next you must empty the canister of its pressure and contents then drill a 1/2 inch hole directly behind the nozzle and file the edge smooth
Step 3: Pressure Valve
For this step I recommend you tie a decent amount of string to the neck of the valve then feed the string in the top and through the hole you drilled then pull the sting and valve through the hole until the valve snaps into place
Step 4: Flame
Here you can get creative if you like but I used a strip of metal about 2 feet in length that I bent to my liking then I taped one end to the extinguisher and tied a rag to be soaked in fuel on the other end
Step 5: Fuel
For this step all you need to do is make a mix of 75% gasoline and 25% diesel and fill the canister half way (If you want to spice things up ad some Boric acid to turn the flame green)
Step 6: Compression
Now all you need to do is hook up your air compressor or air pump and fill until it sounds like it is getting full (If you want to test its stability first do this step before fuel and while empty or with water instead)
