Fuel Door Done

Installed the billet fuel door today. All the online tutorials showed this without the inner boot, but I was afraid of metal on metal rubbing, so I patiently engineered the boot to stay put. This is the Ford Racing door, but I had a body shop paint it to match.

I two installed the frpp's fuel door a few yrs ago. No instructions, & I figured out how to put the fuel door w/ the insert or boot all in one piece & install the alloy fuel door w/o damage. Redline has the same after I bought it & they have the instructions. Yours looks great painted. I have a silver car, so I left my natural alumium. Use tape to protect the paint when installing.

could you show what you did keep the boot

should have left it brushed aluminum...... now its not much different than stock look since it blends in......cant really tell until you get up to it

I dunno, color matched billet fuel doors look amazing!

I always wanted to get to get the aircraft fuel door from Bat Inc. But alas, they're discontinued
