Just noticed  hand brake doesent release automatically  if you don't have the seat belt  engaged,oops.
Have sourced high density foam cut to size in three pieces to fit round spare wheel,will bring boot cover up level  and no sagging. Jack and brace etc fit inside the wheel.

This is why I can't let the other half drive mine as I have come home numerous times to find she had made it about 3-4 meters across (luckily) a stone driveway before trying to remove the handbrake.
I've had it where the seat belt didn't seem to click in correctly, also halting the handbrake auto release. Can be a little annoying at time, but at least I know the seat belt is done correctly  ::)

Update since I put the full size spare wheel  in boot I have also added some sound deadening too.I have found  it has made a differance.Has cut down road noise,made the car a lot quieter.Thick sound proofing vibration deadening sheets bulk 32 Pk mats, cost £27.99 from eBay. Easy to fit and cut,took me about an hour.
