Bah, who needs a spare tire? Spare tires are for wussies!
For now I'll have to agree…
This is the basic temporary set up for the next couple months.
Heck, most new cars don't even come with a spare tire anymore. If you want one, you have to ask for it. I'm not usually likely to change a tire on the side of today's roads anyway, I'll just call triple A and have it towed to the house and fix it there in the safety of my driveway with a proper jack instead of those dinky, ready to fall on you any minute jacks you get with the car. Oh, and I would not recommend even using the bumper jacks on these cars as they can bend the frame. I've seen it happen.
The setup looks good!!! That's kind of what I want to do is tuck everything out of sight. If you do a "hidden" panel over all of that, make sure you vent the compressors somehow. They don't like to be in confined spaces. Definitely post a thread on the install. I'm looking forward to seeing how you install it since I'm not even near that point yet on mine. Looks great!!
