DIY widebody gas cap from OEM
Compliments of marley4us @ club4ag.com
So I actually started some work on the AE86. getting the OEM Gas cap to fit the widebody
Remove the two screws with a screwdriver that hold the gas cap to the car
Found a piece of aluminum tubing. But you could use steel or probably even plastic lol. Then Found some longer bolts M5-.80x40 class 8.8 from lows ( i had in bucket of bolts) and cut the aluminum tubing to space it. I also used a washer to hold it in place. These size bolt fitted my gas cap perfect to space it to my origin 35mm over fenders, but it will very from car to car so measure lol
Then remove the lock that is attached to the gas cap with a 10mm socket.
Get a piece of steel or aluminum ( i used aluminum since i had it, and its easier to form)
Bend it to the shape of the lock
Cut it down, and mark it where the bolt hole is
drill ur hole
test fit it, and measure for how far out you want the gas cap to close so its flush with the widebody
Drill you second hole larger so it will allow for the door lock to slip in
Bend it and adjust it, it may take a few trys but its easier to work with, and you can get it flush
Done :0) and practally free
