Custom homemade rear delete

So when I finally upgraded rims and tires I didn't want a full size spare so I just pulled it and put it in the garage....
A couple weeks ago I fabbed a rear delete my panel from 22ga. Steel.

Painted it semi-gloss black and swapping the bolts to stainless....

After realizing i wasn't a fan of the gloss so I decided to mask off the uga logo and spray the rest of the panel flat black to give it a ghosted appearance....

Check it out!
Matt

Looks great-as I'm new to having a wrangler-is that vent to help with buffeting, and is it ok to cover it?

It will be tougher to close the doors. And a window will need to be cracked to offset defrost or a/c pressure.

The doors are no harder it close and the only ac issue I have had is I get a slight whistle from the top of my driver door when the ac is on but it goes away when I hit the recirculate button


Here is a further away pic excuse the dirty garage I'm making custom cabinets as for the jeep it's supposed to be dirty

That whistle is because the pressure created has found an escape. Same for closing the doors.

Because the vent I covered up.... Usually releases pressure inside the jeep

That vent is only needed on a hard top. Soft tops expand when you close the door. Ah, but op has a hard top...

You can either drill a bunch of cleverly placed holes in your delete plate to open the vent up yet still look good...... or you could put spacers under it to open the vent up....or you could make a new vent elsewhere.

Every hard top car has a vent, usually theyre in the wheel wells. Old volvos had one in the side that was designed into the car and looked good. Big rigs have them on the back wall...

How about just some flat faucet washers. No rust issues.
