25W vs 5W; seems like a no-brainer to me.

On the extinguisher, they don't have to be stored vertically, but no matter how you mount it, it should be removed and "exercised" now and then (read: Beat it around a bit) to keep the powder from clumping up.

I've got an extinguisher in the back.

Though about putting another vhf in but it's on a step so will get wet often and also kicked and stepped on and bashed around. Plus I already have a handheld vhf.

Will see how the storage from the polo goes. Will take some photos

Get a piece of carbon plate to cover it, make sure it has a stable UV varnish/lacquer on it and it will look fine.... A little bit of carbon plate always looks good.
