Make yourself another spare wheel well cover from a rigid sheet of aluminum.

Attach the forward most portion of the new cover to a length of flat 'piano hinge' and rivet it to the cover.

Use the RED automotive two-sided sticky tape to adhere the other end of the hinge to cleaned contact surfaces on the cargo bay body.

Don't forget to drill a finger hole in the new cover. Large enough for pocket change to fall in, get trapped, and rattle all the way down the highway. :nice:

Take the cardboard out, take a spray bottle with water and wet both sides, just damp, flip it upside down, lay a piece of plywood about the same size on it with some weight on that. May take a few days and a couple spray treatmemts.
There is supposed to be a small block of hard styrofoam glued to the board that sits between that and the spare tire, some got it and some didn't.
Someone may have a better way to make it flat again. Worked for me though.

No spare tire under there?
Nope I figured what’s the point of the original spare tire if I swapped to 5 lug. I have been thinking about throwing a spare out of a crown Vic in there or one out of a newer mustang. Or a custom speaker box!!

Hmmm that’s a large sheet of aluminum I need, Home Depot?

Damn. That came out really slick. Matches perfectly
Yeah really happy how it came out. Glad I could use the inserts from the upholstery I bought, then find the same material from these guys and have them make it all work. Now to fix this wheel well cover and then possibly a new shifter boot and ebrake cover like you have from redline

Or go to HD and find a nice flat piece of 1/4 plywood and cut it to fit. Maybe stain it or cover it in a coat of polyurethane to prevent it from soaking in moisture and changing shape over time.

Just grab a cobra spare on eBay. It fits in the well, the tire size is correct and it will clear the brakes

I’m gonna put this on the list and get rid of my 3/8 plywood I’ve been using!

So been chatting with this guy in regards to his KB flowzilla kit which if he gets a fab’d a2a one he will relinquish his to me. Probably won’t happen but he had this clutch and flywheel up for grabs. My old clutch is surely about 15 plus years old, has a new MM clutch cable, etc. never really banged on the gears as it pretty much sat in garages since 2003. He also has a new fly wheel. What do you guys think. Is this a good clutch?

If you're still running a T5 I would stay away from that clutch.
