|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.|

It does look great.

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.

One last question.... If I install this Jeep cover can I STILL utilize my factory gas cap and lanyard????

|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!!!|

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.
|04-08-2012 01:51 AM|
|broncotw||@7ekken: Did the holes in the fuel door you installed line up with the factory holes? Was there drilling involved? Or was it just a screw on installation??? Looks sharp!!! I am thinking of adding this to my 2010 Sport!!!! Thanks|

Externally they are identical.

|Jay bird||Would a 2 dr fuel door be different than a 4dr? Looking for one but guy says it's for 2dr and that 4dr has different part number.|

Great Tip! ... thanks basecamper

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.

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.|
|04-07-2012 09:03 AM|
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.

|cu in oz||2nd on the Q-Tip and or tiny brush. What kind of paint did you use......its looks perfect.|
|04-07-2012 07:56 AM|
|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 07:39 AM|
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.
|04-06-2012 10:19 PM|
|broncotw||Very nice! Where did you purchase the fuel cap cover? I have a 2010 and would like to have a fuel cap like that!!!|
|04-06-2012 08:06 PM|
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.
|04-06-2012 07:51 PM|
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.

|Matador||Great job. I would be afraid of it coming off while your screwing them in. Did you have to do any touch ups?|
