Justin: Hey, everybody. I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com, and today, we're taking a quick look at installing the SpeedForm Fuel Door Cover shown here in Matte Black available for your 2008 and newer Challenger. Now, long story short here, guys, you should be considering the SpeedForm option if you are looking to ditch the factory chrome fuel door on your Challenger, and, instead, go with a stealthy matte black option that still retains a lot of the factory retro styling all at a very affordable price point.So, the main feature here with the SpeedForm kit will be the blacking out, if you will, of the factory chrome fuel door for a super affordable price. Now, the chrome, while appealing to some owners out there and true to that old-school look, doesn't really vibe with the owners who are looking to black everything out on their rides from the lights to the wheels and more. Now, if that sounds like you and you're that type of owner, well, then this is certainly gonna be a great option. Now, the SpeedForm is gonna deliver that blacked-out look of course for not a lot of dough, and I would say still retains a lot of that OE-styling down to the font minus that chrome, of course, which let's face it, is notorious for getting beat up, chipped, or pitted over the years.And this is a great time to segue into the construction as the SpeedForm will replace that factory chrome door with a combination of plastic basically for some of the interior portions here, guys, in addition to the little collar, but mainly what you're gonna be looking at is aluminum for the door itself. You get that nice clunk in addition to your actual surround here. That's all hardcore aluminum and it will be very, very durable. Now, everything has been finished in a UV-resistant matte black to help achieve that stealthy look we've been talking about that a lot of owners are really after. Finally, guys, again, I mentioned it earlier, but the wording for fuel here is embossed in the aluminum cover there in a very similar, if not the same font as the stock cover for an OE-inspired appearance.Now, coming in at or around the $50 ballpark, the SpeedForm option is currently the most affordable black fuel door on the site here for your Challenger. Other options, whether it be from Drake or Mopar, we'll run you hundreds more than the SpeedForm on the table today. So, again, if you're looking to go dark but keep things budget-friendly, this is gonna be your best bet.All right, guys, moving into the installation, you'll be happy to know that this is a clip-on piece much like the stocker. Therefore, the site is gonna call this a solid 1 outta 3 wrenches on the difficulty meter, and about 30 minutes to complete from start to finish. And now to give you a better idea of just how things might go down at home, here is an AmericanMuscle customer to walk you through it.Man: Today, I'm gonna be doing an install of a SpeedForm Matte Black Fuel Door. No tools are necessary. You might wanna have some gloves on just to keep your hands clean, things of that nature. Only thing we're gonna be doing is going under the under-fender part, and pressing out four clips that surround the gas cap area, as you can see is this one, this one, this one, and this one. It mimics the OEM product that we're gonna be replacing with the SpeedForm. So, let me show you the panel real quick. This is just an under-fender panel that's not even hooked onto anything. You just wanna reach up in here with your hand. There should be plenty of space as long as you have tire clearance.So, you're gonna reach under here, you're going to bend this back, you're gonna take your hand, you are gonna feel underneath the gas can for the little push pins. Once you start pushing them out, you should see the fuel cans start to protrude. Four simple pins, like, you should have plenty of space to reach up under here. Now, that we gotten those loose, we are gonna open up the fuel door, open up the fuel cap, remove it from the OEM housing. You can use a pry tool, but it just pops right out. Simple pin. And we're gonna keep this because we're gonna put it on the new door.Once you have these four pins popped out, sometimes they like to slide back in. Make sure you have all of them pushed out. Apologies they keep sliding back in. Man, that you have them all pushed out, you wanna grab the whole housing and pull it off the rubber gasket as so. It's as simple as that. Four pins, one, two, three, four. On the OEM original one, we removed the full fuel door. Now, we're gonna replace it. We took the rubber part, it popped right off of the OEM. We're gonna clean this up. We are gonna clean that area before we place the new house in.We're gonna take the brand new fuel door. We're gonna put in the fuel cap, pops right in, hook it onto the door, and we're gonna make sure that the new old ring lines up with the gasket. We're gonna slide, push that on there. You wanna invert it out. Give it some play so it can slide over the gasket. Finally, popped it on. So, you wanna curl it outward so that it can slip over the line. And then once you do that, you're just gonna click the four. Two, four. Once that's done, place your gas cap. Clean off the area, and there you go.Justin: So, wrapping things up here, guys, again, if you did wanna ditch that chrome stock cover, and go with an affordable stealthy black option instead, be sure to check out this Fuel Door from SpeedForm, right here at americanmuscle.com.
