Welcome to you and Berty.

Ah, the great bonnet spare wheel mount.
Shouldn't say it too loudly here but have one of those (modified) on a second boot lid for the MX5 so we could have a spare when went touring.
Something which will become possible again in Australia soon.
Have also used them on Commodores in the past.
These mounts are now becoming more difficult to find.
