(This was my first post ever, from last May, but I had posted it under someone else's post instead of creating a new one, so I wanted to do this correctly.)

I made myself a Spare Tire Cover about 4 years ago for my Honda CRV.  I get compliments all the time! No one loves Led Zeppelin as much as I. I was really worried about it being stolen at first, so I bought a bike rope lock and wrapped through the cover and the metal casing that holds my tire on. No one's touched it in 4 years.  I used to live in Utah and now I live in Arizona so it's made it thru the coldest of cold and the hotest of hot weather.  Still looks good as new.

I used my old tire cover for the pattern and used black vinyl and shiny silver piping for the cover and red and silver vinyl for the letters (red stacked on silver). Then I sewed the letters on with silver thread.
