    I am designing a system now that basically replaces the spare tire cover with an assembly holding an amp, 2 - 12" subs, the computer, and maybe one of those plasma circular plates. It would just fit over the area where the existing spare tire cover would go on my car.. and be attached through the bolt that holds the current one down.

    I am starting my spare tire well install today. I am putting two 12" subs and two 4 - channel amps in there. I'm not gonna be able to fit the spare tire in there but I have roadside assistance from hyundai so I'm not really worried. I'll get pics up as soon as I finish.

    Umm, i guess it depends on your car? In mine there is barely any space left when the wheel is in the well. I just finished my wheel well project yesterday... will post some pics later tonight. Didnt have the camera handy yesterday.

    I've built a box which fits into the spare wheel. You can see a picture of it in this thread UK Kent/SE meet - first post will be kept upto date. Look out for the picture which says Merc Boot (trunk)

    The box lifts out giving access to the spare wheel. Also useful when I need to take it into the house for maintenance.

    Box is made from MDF with the motherboard, supply and harddisk mounted to it.
