Hi Chris, ingenious way to find space for a gas tank. Is it legal to mount the spare on the front like that?

Like the spare wheel, we converted a Bedford CF years ago and had the spare wheel there.

That's where the Danbury VWs have it too - albeit under a cover.

just to add:
From 25th May 2007 for motor vehicles categorised as M1 (a passenger carrying vehicle not exceeding 3.5 tonnes and not more than 8 passengers) or N1 (a goods vehicle not exceeding 3.5 tonnes) it will only be legal to manufacturer and sell bull bars that comply with EU Directive 2005/66/EC.

It will be illegal to manufacture and sell bull bars that do not conform to this legislation punishable by a maximum penalty, to be imposed within the UK, of 12 months imprisonment and/or a fine of £20,000.

2005/66/EC compliant bars need to be pedestrian friendly, energy absorbing types

Just let some air out or the spare wheel, that will make it pedestrian friendly, energy absorbing:D
You might find people/cyclists lining up to bounce off it(y)

I am sorry ! It looks ridiculous.
Like, when did you last have a puncture? Call a breakdown service or wear dark glasses and a big hat so no one recognises you LOL.
