ChiJeep Can you buy black replacement screws?

Jeepster4 Thanks for posting the instructions on how you did that. The exact same fuel door is on my wish list for my JK. Like you, I didn't like the look of the silver screws when I was pricing it recently. I had already decided I'd have to paint them black but wasn't quite sure how I was going to do it. You just saved me a lot of time so thank you. Yours look great, I can't wait to get mine!!

ESP I think it looked better with the silver screws.

71K5 I like the idea of painting the door screws. Looks good!
Normally I would do the same.
But it seems, in my case, my screws match my nuts. My JK lugs, that is.
Thats why I probably won't spray paint them. My JK door screws, that is.
Besides, it would tickle too much.

broncotw Awesome! Thanks again 7ekken!

Sherifftruman Looks nice. I've thought the same thing many times. I've actually thought of buying new black screws a few times.

broncotw Perfect!!! Thanks 7ekken!!!

There was no drilling needed. The factory housing is not screwed in, it is held in with plastic clips. The new one is a clip in also. The instructions have you remove the 2 screws closest to the center of the vehicle from the drivers tail light for access. The screws you see on the new cover go into the new clipped in housing.


I know this is a link to another forum, but he does a pretty good job with pictures and an explanation of how he installed his door.

YES, they are different. I found out the hard way, the index nub is in a different spot on the 4dr vs the 2dr. dont ask me why.
Externally they are identical.

Also helps if you rough them up with scotch brite and use a self etching primer.

OP looks great I may have to steel this idea I did the same thing on my dually screws but never thought of the gas cover.

Great Tip! ... thanks basecamper

Up close you cannot even tell it was painted.

I used Model Master Flat Black enamel paint mixed with some enamel thinner. Then used my cheapo airbrush with a compressed air can.

The paint can be found in any hobby store. If you cannot find Model Master brand, I have used Testors brand with great success on my RC cars in the past.

InfernoGirl Poke em into a piece of cardboard, and hit em with some touch up paint or nail polish or spray bomb.... what ever you have handy Then you can touch em up easy if you wreck em installing.

sunnykk That looks better.

I was thinking of doing mine but not that high on the priority list right now. Actually, I dont mind the little chrome screws.

smaxberry I haven't purchased yet, but I was thinking of doing that and painting the "jeep" on the cap flame red to match the jeep. Anyone else done that?
04-07-2012 06:39 AM
strider_mt2k A Q-tip with some paint on it works a treat for installation touch-ups on painted fastener hardware.

If you don't use too much paint you can kinda mash it into a torx or hex head to great effect.

I purchased mine from a local dealer - they gave me a decent deal. Some of the WF guys get theirs off ebay or other sites for the Jeep/Mopar door.

Beastmaster That's what I love about this forum.

Just as I am getting ready to do a project, someone beats me to it and gives some reviews.

Looks good.

no, i was extremely careful screwing them back in. It was a delicate process actually to not mess up the finish.

I'm actually going to take them back out and run one more coat over them then run a non glossy clear coat over them just to protect the finish.
