I have a 21 touring and would like to mount the spare tire on the running board on the drivers side. What does one of these mounts look like? Does anyone have one they want to part with?
I'd like one for a '15 touring as well
Several examples here: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/351932.html?1364849151
I got mine from Jack Daron and love it!
I got the tire cover and leather straps from Lang's.
The tire makes a great arm rest when mounted to the running board.
Mark. Where did you get the straps?
Here's a link:
I have them in stock. $75 plus shipping.
Here's one from long ago. I made one like this.
Jack's looks pretty sturdy.
I have mounted the brass ones that only fasten to the top of the fake door in one spot with a couple places on the running board. They will tear the body apart on a real rough road after a short time.
The one Herb pictured looks like it also would do the job.
Jack, will they mount under my cowl lamp brackets? My car has a separate brackets, and they are not part of the windshield bracket. Does it require a hole drilled in the body to mount the rear of the top bracket?
They mount on the two windshield bolts and yes one screw goes into the side of body You may need slightly longer bolts. I think your lamp brackets will still work.
