This is a SpeedForm Bullitt Style brushed fuel door for the 2005 to 2009 Mustang. Fuel doors are a popular exterior mod for the '05 to '09 cars, and they're a fast, easy, and inexpensive way to add a little bit of exterior styling to the car without doing anything permanent. This particular fuel door has all of those benefits, and like with any fuel door, the difference is gonna be in the styling. This fuel door has a brushed aluminum finish, which is going to look different than a black fuel door and a chrome fuel door. Now, fuel doors aren't for everybody out there, and they're gonna come down to personal preference, but I will say that SpeedForm does offer the most budget-friendly fuel doors currently available. The install for this is easy. It's a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you can plan on this taking about 15 minutes to get on the car.
Other than the finish, which is pretty self-explanatory here, you can see that this is brushed aluminum and it's both stain- and weather-resistant, you have other things to consider, like materials. This fuel door is made from aluminum, so it's lightweight and durable. Those are always two good qualities when it comes to exterior parts because it means that it's gonna hold up over time but not be cumbersome or add weight to the car. With your fuel door comes your mounting bracket, and your mounting tub, and hardware, so you get everything you need to install it. This uses a magnetic clasp and a striker plate to keep the door closed, but if you aren't satisfied with that, we do sell locking fuel doors, too. But I can't say that I've personally heard of anyone having issues with this setup closing and keeping shut.
I touched on this already, but this fuel door is currently the most budget-friendly option that you have. You can expect to pay $70 for any one of SpeedForm's fuel doors, which includes this brushed aluminum one or a black one. There are other options on the site, too. If you wanted something that's got a little bit more going on with it, MMD offers a few with lettering on them, and a few more with other finishes. So you can also check out the other options from Saleen and SHR, too.
Getting this installed on your car should take you about 15 minutes. It's a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you'll just need a few basic hand tools. You'll need to remove your stock fuel door, which is held on by four screws - two at the hinge, and two at the rubber bumper pieces. Take your screwdriver with your torques and unscrew the screws. Take your time when you get down to the last screw, and make sure you don't scratch your car when the fuel door drops free. Remove the plastic covering from over the door. Unscrew the leftmost two screws. The two screws in the center will not be removed. Take the new fuel door, and insert the hinge portion first. Take the two long screws provided and run them into the pre-drilled holes. Use the O-rings that are then given for the screws, and slide them down as far as possible. Take the two clips that you removed from the right side, and slide them into place behind the fuel door. The clips will go over the inside edge of the panel opening. Line the holes up and screw in the supplied screws. Do this for both the top and the bottom. All that's left, then, is your fitment check. You wanna see that the fuel door fits tightly against the car.
