Re: Fuel door upgrade

I dont like the flow they give to the car, kind of looks out of place on most vehicles. Some love it for some reason. I never understood the want to accent where the to expensive fuel goes in lol

I like mine. It has a magnet door catch. It says mach1 on it and it's all black. I think I would prefer no writing, but it was there when I bought it. The guy that put it on was not handy with tools cause he boogered the paint up in a few places, so be careful putting yours on. I assume the boogering was from trying to make it level, but that's just a guess.

I like what you have picked out. Make sure it fits with your other external mods.

I'll have to agree with you on the flow of the car lines. I think I like mine cause it fits the black Mach stripes and spoiler. But mainly, I like the robust door with the magnet catch better than the flimsy plastic door that usually looks like the kids have been swinging from them after a few years.

My friend has the polished/anthracite erosion of that on his white NE. I really like it. Material and the way they made it looks a lot better than the Stack Racing one that I have.

Well I'm going with the black and chrome theme. This is my car and was just wondering if this fuel door would look good.

Re: Fuel door upgrade

^Yup, I think it will Looks like the mouting ring area will match well with the Mustang letters in the rear and the lips on the wheels. And the black, well, you know

Because they just don't look good to me. Normally associate them with halo headlights and underglow neons.

But yes, it does match your theme if that's what you're going for
