Hi All, Advice please on best way to cover the whole where my friend has removed the spare wheel and carrier on his 1993 W463. See attached picture with 3 black bungs that he has fitted, is there a better solution? Thanks.

Where is wheel? What happened to the mount? Must make the rear door much lighter, you could get a body shop to patch but why???

If you don't want the "distinctive" spare wheel then you could always fit body coloured bungs or event paint those you have in body colour. That would make them stand out less.

Remember the Brabus GV12, it had the spare wheel delete though it might have been a weight issue

Re: Spare Wheel Delete W463 1993
My friends never does anything other than potter round London so he's not bothered about carrying a spare. He also prefers the look of his car without the mount. Seems there isn't an official delete kit, I'll advise him to either go with the black bungs or get them body coloured.. Thanks.
