The SilverHorse Racing Tru-Billet Fuel Door is the first and only on the market for the cars made from over 5 Lbs. of solid 6061-T6 certified aluminum billets, machined down to an exact fit instead of being bent or cast into shape. This results in a part that is lighter than the stock fuel door it replaces (approx. 1 Lb.), yet will take just about whatever abuse you want to throw at it.
After anodizing or plating, they are hand-assembled using stainless steel hardware, precision ground stainless hinge spacer/washers, and nylon mounting bushings for a perfect fit that requires no drilling of sheet metal (although the inner plastic housing is removed during the installation process). Retention and closing of the door is accomplished with cadmium-plated press-fit neodymium rare-earth magnets and an exclusive striker plate that is retained by stainless steel hardware, not loose-fitting glued-in components. Installs in about twenty minutes using common hand tools, and they are available in different engraving options and in a variety of finishes. This piece was rigorously tested to insure proper function with the new capless fuel system for over 4 months prior to release!
We are once again the FIRST to market with a proper fitting and functional piece for your new Mustang - while we're sure there will be imitators, there will most certainly not be any innovators following in our tracks! To satisfy requests for customers who would like to paint their fuel door to match or contrast their car, we are offering our popular Tru-Billet fuel door in a unfinished and unassembled state at a substantial discount! This is to aid customers who would like to paint their parts prior to installation, and is NOT recommended for customers who would like to receive an assembled, ready to install fuel door.
