I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Hi Bus people! I'm getting ready to put a 77 Scotty Gaucho (13 feet, 1000lb pounds) on the market. It's a custom rebuild, not restoration. Has electric brakes. Anyone interested here?

Looking for one that can hold a 15 inch tire (about 28 inches) One with a flat face would be ideal. If you only have the face, even better as I already found a ring.

Just about all of the conversion vans (GM, Ford & Dodge ) built back in the 80s and 90s used this type of spare tire cover, and most had 15" tires. The junk yards should be full of them if they haven't already been sent to the crusher.

hey snoopy, the rav 4 covers aren't entirely flat... they have an indented swoosh on several years models... just fyi if you go that route.

personally I like the look of the Isuzu trooper tire cover, but they are just too big for a bus wheel/tire. However if you wanted to make it work you could always find a junk tire of the trooper size and sawzall out the sidewall and slip it over your spare before putting the cover on.
