Cool Re: Gas Door size???

SIZE, SCHMIZE!
I'd worry more about the curvature of the bady panel there. It's not completely flat you know!
I have two 2006 Cruisers:
1) The 2006 hatch back's fuel door opening is 5 and 5/8 inches wide; with the belt-line groove across the middle. The cover's contour is fairly flat on the body.
2) The 2006 convertible gas lid opening is 5 and 7/8 inches wide,; has no groove, as the beltilne runs above the gas lid on the convertible; but has a distinct curve outwards on the bottom 1/2 to 1/3rd of the lid.
So, that covers the 2006 and up models.

Is it a real gas door or just a cover?

Do you still have the link, or at least the seller's name for this?
