Small mod to facilitate spare tire pressure checking

This applies to 2003 996 Cabriolet (and possibly others). Accessing the air stem on the spare tire for checking and maintaining the air pressure can be a pain given that the spare is covered in this car. Per the attached pictures, you can cut a small hole in the cover at the location of the stem. Please note that before cutting the hole, put the cover on the tire in a way that puts the stem at a convenient location (in my case, that's at the 1 o'clock position). I did this modification a yea

Never seen that.

I keep the valve on the spare facing down so I can get to it throught the storage pocket area on the cover. Problem is I have so much stuff in my trunk I still can't get to the valve unless I empty the trunk. Thought about getting an extension hose.
