Anyone know how to get the fuel door off?? I'm hoping that I don't need to pop the interior panel off to get to a couple of bolts to get that bad boy off the car.

Any ideas?

Just don't get to crazy with the drill, just drill the head off the rivet. You don't want to go through to the paint, So don't drill too fast.

I want to wrap it in Silver Carbon...not an applique but actually wrap the door. So I'm trying to get the entire door assembly off and back on the car. Drilling out the rivets isn't gonna work but if that's the only way to get the door off then wrapping it isn't gonna work either! :p

Its easy enough to do, I did it. Well, I drilled out the two rivets and riveted the TRD smoked fuel door on.
