Jolly Friar's guide to replacing the tailgate for one with a rear mounted spare wheel.


This is one of the most detailed and interesting tutorials we have ever had. It addresses one of the major complaints that many owners have with their Mk3 RAVs by replacing the much missed rear door mounted spare wheel. It is clear the Liz and her OH have gone to a great deal of trouble in both making the modification and creating such a detailed account. For that reason I have added another star (one each to Liz and her OH) to her profile and I know I echo the thoughts of many of our many members and casual readers by saying thank you for all your trouble. The browser doesn't allow so many photos so I've had to list them all seperately. Enjoy the read, Anchorman;
