Brazil – Ford EcoSport owner gets rid of the exposed spare wheel, designs his own rear fascia

The Ford EcoSport looks nothing like anything else on the road but a few owners think there’s still room for individuality.

Removing the spare wheel from the tailgate does affect the outdoorsy character of the EcoSport.

This particular example of the EcoSport from Brazil sees the owner supposedly disliking the exposed spare wheel layout, and redesigning that part of the rear end.

The modification is very clean and looks almost factory-finished. The tailgate has been modified after removing the spare wheel mount and now houses the number plate enclosure, which comes off a Fiesta. The faux silver diffuser has also been re-designed to give a smooth look.

Other changes which can be spotted are the silver roof rails and roof along with aftermarket alloy wheels. The spare wheel is now tucked away in the boot.
