If you want those bronze bushings to last, dont grease them.

The capillary action wouldn't even take place in the bronze until at least 1000RPM, so the film that normally develops on oil impregnated bronze wouldn't happen in this application. So it would be ungreased

Rough cut tire arm, not quite sure where the tire will end up sitting.




Cut the tire mount section and welded to the plate



I welded both inside and outside the tube. It got so hot the plate turned a goldish color.

Exactly between those two positions. Centered from top to bottom using the hatch as the background (not including the bumper)

Imagine the back window and molding is red...same amount of red showing on top as is showing on bottom.

I think I'm going to mount it just about in between those two. I want it to be below the profile of the roof curve to reduce wind noise. Working on mounting the studs into the plate right now. Brb with pics

Yep, thats why the hinge is opposite the tire. This also allows the tire to be in your natural blind spot
