Over the last couple of weeks I got around to the spare wheel carrier.
As I don't like weight that far back, and since I didn't want to add lights in the bumper, I kept the wheel in basically the same location but placed it back to front in order to get it as close to the door as possible.

Next (and probably last) step will be a corner guard for the left side tail lights.
Similar easthetically to the bracket that holds the swing arm but coming around the back a bit further.
