Fuel Door

May 13/2015

After fueling up today, the fuel door didn't close all the way. The hinge rotted away and fell out of place.

With the spring not doing its job, the fuel door doesn't always stay closed all the way. I decided to put install a magnetic latch.....

AMI #121.


Had soem small screws laying around.

Cleaned up the area.

Latch installed. Took some time to get it dialed in.

Open, closed.

Moved the fuel cap teather to the hinge.

Added a hook to hold the cap when re-fueling.

What it would look like if the cap wasn't put back on.

First fuel up and everything is working fine.

If you have any comments, suggestions, or see any errors, please let me know..... cbradley@telus.net
