Remove Spare Wheel Carrier

One of the more noticable changes to my car has been the removal of the spare wheel carrier. The decision to remove this was fairly easy to make having seen many cars without the spare wheel on the back and preferring the cleaner lines this gave.

The obvious disadvantage of having no spare wheel is that if you get a puncture, you cannot change the wheel. That said, on a kit, you don't typically carry a jack any way, so changing the wheel wouldn't be particularly easy any way. The solution comes in the form of a can of TyreWeld. Upon getting a puncture, the can is attached to the valve and injects a substance into the tyre. This seals the puncture and the pressurised air within the can inflates the tyre so the car can be driven.
