    Car PC in spare wheel well a good idea?

    My spare wheel well is pretty large. It's large enough to hold my regular ATX system. I was wondering if it would be wise to move my system in there and take out the spare wheel. Can I get away with no spare wheel and just use one of those inflater/patcher spray cans or is this not a good idea?

    Here's an idea: raise your trunk by 3-4 inches. The whole thing? Or half of it - but leave the spare tire available. What Idid in the rumpus of the minivan. Just raised the floor withthe carputer beneath. Really easy.

    replace you spare with a space saver. Get more room that way.

    This is pretty easy actually, if it is used as a daily driver you should always have a spare just in case, if however it is a weekend car and not something that waiting for a tow truck for an hour will kill you if your out in it then go for it. Alot of soundoff guys have better things to put in there spare tire wells that spare tires so do what you think is best.
