I created this thread for two reasons:
1) After 9 months
of waiting I finally received the TRD
Fuel Door from TRD Source
. They (Claremont Toyota) don't even sell this product anymore so nobody has to experience my pain again.
2) I've never seen too many pictures of this product and I thought a number of people might appreciate some good pics. This item has not
been installed on my car yet and won't be for a few more months. The winter is super harsh here so the door will go on in time for the next show season
I paid $220 for this (which was a good price to begin with) so it's not cheap but consider it an investment in a unique part. This is a show piece
...nobody is forcing you to shell out $200 for it but it's a quality piece and if you like the look, pick one up
To install you will need to
- Drill out the two existing rivets on the hinge of your existing Fuel Door
- Use a rivet-gun to secure the new TRD
Fuel Door using the two supplied rivets
The silver fuel cap is not aluminum
. It's a piece of silver plastic that attaches on top of your existing fuel cap with adhesives.
That's about it!
There are a number of TRD
Depts. at Toyota Dealerships that apparently still ship this item. Before purchasing, ask if the item is IN STOCK
and ready to ship. If it's not, I believe it's typically a 3 month wait. How I had to wait 9 months
KARACING, I believe, has a few in stock...TRD Fuel Door Sale
