Spare Tire

Hiding my Spare Tire behind my trillium...... a month ago when i purchased my trillium I had a old dried up vinyl covering my spare. I decided that while I am renovating that had to change. So I shopped on Kijiji looking for something that would be nice behind my caddy ..... well here is what I have found and that I am modifying to fit behind my trillium.

25 lbs, I took all the lock mechanism out and also cut out alot of metal and plastic. Once mounted I expect it will be 30lbs plus the spare.

Could you not just fasten the hub cap to a light weight vinyl tire cover?

Probably, but the extra pounds will not cause me much griff because I will be balancing it out with the instant propane water heater that will be mounted to the front near propane bottle.

Not yet decided in chroming the bumper. But due like the name you gave it, was going to call it caddie shack.
