i dont know if its easy to get jacked. you do have to drill it in. and doesnt it open if you pull the lever-switch just like the oem one?

I need one also. My stock fuel lid is jacked up from the previous owner putting TOO much touch up paint. Looks uber nasty.

Too expensive! I wouldn't get one unless the stock lid is messed up.

take off the stock one, get a drimmel and carve out the center, then take some plexi glass and cut it to the same shape and put it into the metal... then drill some holes and put some self taping screws around the out side to make it look good... hell if someone would donate me an old gas cap... i could try it..

exact replacement - perfect fit... all you need to do is drill out the original rivets and put the new door on, securing it with a rivet gun in the stock locations...

i've heard that they are hard to find as well because:

"They are no longer being made being made in japan for export becase the DOT had them all destroyed"
i believe he paid $400.00 brand new

can anyone confirm this confused
