|When I received the fuel door and read the instructions I was surprised I needed to punch out the rivets of the OEM door, then again I guess there's really no other way. Wasn't a big deal for me, but it could be a deciding factor to some that may not want to do this or not sure how or even have the proper tools. This should be mentioned in the details of the product before purchasing.|
It's not difficult, but as mentioned it could be daunting to some.
Also once all was said and done, I could not lock the door due to the locking mechanism did not go in far enough. It's actually a latch that will catch on the cavity of the fuel filling area. What I had to do was bend the latch outward to meet up with the body to turn the locking mechanism. This wasn't difficult to do, just bend the latch at the 90 degree point with a pair of pliers. I would have given a 5 star for installation IF I did not have to do this, and drill out the rivets. I think others considering this item should know this in advance. With that said, I don't think you'll find another cover as nice as this one though.
As for the appearance, I think it would be nice to have just the wording on the door and do away with the gear looking art...smooth with just the word of choice. Price was worth it to me, but I'm sure a locking gas cap would have been cheaper, but I prefer to have the door lock instead. The door is made of good quality, and it would have been good to have a hook of sort to hang the gas cap on while refueling...I use the locking mechanism to hook my gas cap and that seems to be working ok...just would have been nice to have an actual hook for the gas cap.
If you're considering to purchase this fuel door, you will not regret it, just take your time during installation and be sure to have the tools listed to do the job...it will make it much easier. You may also want to purchase a spare plastic clip at the 6 o'clock location just in case you damage that while removing it. However, if you pry it up slowly and gently it will come out ok.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend or someone on the fence making a decision to purchase...go for it, you won't regret it!
