realy pretty simple just make a box frame with square tubing make it tall enought to be a tire rack also and then rivit some aluminum sheet to it then on bolth ends make another frame that will fit inside the frame and hindge it for doors then just run a piece of flat steel with a hole drilled in it and run a rod thru it for a tire rack
