Fuel Fill Door Replacement
I replaced the plastic fuel fill doors with chrome plated steel doors. This was a very straight forward project that took about an hour. I purchased the doors from Amazon. Ultra-Fab Products 48-979010 Chrome Universal Access Door ($35). They have locks on them and there wasn't an option to get them keyed alike. Not really a big deal. The chrome finish is very nice and the doors seem to be well made. Simply remove the original plastic doors. Line up the new doors (make sure the lock bar clears the side of the hole in your coach when in the locked position). Mark the new mounting holes. Drill the new holes with the proper pilot drill. On the Palazzo there is an aluminum frame behind the exterior wall on all four sides of the opening. Screws are not included with the doors. I used #10, 3/4", stainless steel sheet metal screws. You will notice that I had to trim one corner to clear the wheel well trim. I marked this cut-off line then clamped the corner to be cut off in a vise and cut it with a hacksaw. Then cleaned up the edge with fine sandpaper being careful not to damage the chrome side. Very happy with the results.
