Spare tire was not going to fit as it is wider than the older skinny ones. Made this bracket out of stainless steel bar and threaded rod. The rod is welded in and needs a nut on the inside to help hold it in place. This raised the mounting up to the level needed to fit. Also put clear paint protection film on the back panel where the tire sits so the paint will not get abused from the tire rub.

Driving this small vehicle on the roads in the USA with all the land yachts and clueless drives I added a whip antenna with an orange flag. Hope the flapping flag will help get drivers attention. I can only HOPE.

I have gone with an alternator and wanted to help sorta hide it a little. Painted it black and made a mount for the coil to sit on top of it. The mount is aluminum "C" channel carved to fit the profile on the alternator with a large hose clamp to fit over it to hold it all on.

Wanting to keep the original look even though I am using a newer starter that does not use a separate starter solenoid. I installed an older style solenoid, with some grinding to remove the plastic between the two large wire terminals I made a bar of copper to go between the two terminals to bypass it. I have heard that the new ones do not last long at all so now it does not matter as it is only for show anyway.
