Thanks.

    I think It is just a lot of drilling out the rivets and bolting them in. I always thought it looked good and would look damn fine painted black.

    Saved these instructions a while back. They're not mine, and I would give credit to the person who made them, but I can't remember where I came across it.

    Its fairly straight forward

    You'll need some washers that are ~1/4 - 3/8 in OD...and that fit the bolts that came with the new fuel door.... you'll use them to sandwich your new door and the car body together....

    You'll find it easier too if you remove your rear tire and wheel and loosen up the black body panel inside your wheel well...it just has some plastic screw keepers

    1. Open your fuel stock door...you'll see some pop rivets that circle your door...get a drill that’s just barely larger than the size of the center of the pop rivers... and drill them out..

    2. Pull the door off

    3. If your going to re-use your plastic overfill catch thingie you’ll have to mod it by notching it where the screws on the new fuel door will pass thru it and notch it or drill out holes for them to pass thru... if your not going to re-use then proceed on to step 4.

    4. Press the new fuel door against the outside of the cars body…. and at the same time place the bolts that came with the fuel door thru the holes on the fuel door...and thru or around the catch cup if you used it… they will not need to go thru the body of your car. in fact I don’t think they even come close..

    Anyway...use the nut and washer to "sandwich" the body of the car between the washers and the fuel door. Don’t over tighten so that you can make minor adjustments for fit as you go.

    5. Do the same for all bolts on the cover put everything back.. then check the fit and tighten everything down

    6. Have a beer...your done

    This took me about 35 minutes..its very straight forward....If you do a neat job at drilling out the stock fuel door you can very easily roll-back your mod to stock...

    would this work on a 3rd gen (1987 iroc) and how much would this cost?

    I think the fuel doors are about $80 but I don't think it would fit the curves (or lack there of) on the 3rd gen.

    NICE! Can we have some pics zoomed out so the whole side is visible? Maybe something I would look into doing. Mine is white so even keeping it in the original finish wouldn't be too bad.
