I've decided I'd like to secure the spare tire cover in the front trunk so it doesn't move around. It seems a bit loose and I want to keep it from moving while driving into turns and over bumps, etc.

I am planning on bolting it to the spare tire with a long bolt going thru one of the wheel nut holes, thru a hole in the cover and a wing nut. But, before I do, I thought I'd see if there were others who had done it and see what they did.

I'd like the spare tire to be bolted separately; in other words, I want to be able to lift up the cover without undoing the bolt that holds the tire in place. I store stuff under it.

I'm making a new cover out of 5/8" plywood (it was free and I want something thicker than stock so it doesn't bend) and I'm not planning on adding any carpet. I'm just going to paint it black.
