The instructions are very stright-forward. It will be a imple install, I'll post pics when I install it tomorrow. Some people have said that the reason why my door costs about $30 more than the FRPP door is because they give you detailed instructions. Well they do, but also in the manual it says that Redline tuning machined these doors down in the back to get them to sit flush on the focus I couldn't tell that any machine work was done to the backside.

I am either gonna have to find the column covers for the radio, or dremel my own, plus I still gotta buy the kit for it and have it sent off to Starfury for a blue conversion. Gonna finish other things before I start with that one.

You could find a way to save it, but that piece that you are referring to is attached to the OEM gas door and it will also be in the way of the new door.

I don't know what brand, but I talked to a guy older guy at a meet who had a similar gas cover. He said he had to remove the inter metal flange that surrounds the gas nozzle in order to get the bolts in. So after you open the cover the nozzle just stands alone with nothing around it after.

Here's his I don't have a direct pic of it but you can see it in the upper right corner.
