    Default Fuel pump access covers

    I hope this is in the right spot...
    Im new to this forum but have been active on another g8 forum for a while. Thought I would share this with you. I teamed up with local fabricator to make these access covers since they were no longer being made.

    You will receive:

    1 Top cover
    1 base
    6 Rivnut fasteners
    6 stainless fasteners
    1 template for cutting out the circle
    1 sealing o-ring

    The top and base will be machined from aluminum and anodized black with the companies logo laser etched into it.
    The halves will use an o-ring to seal so no unwanted vapors will make it into the cabin which is an update from the original version.

    Looking at having these made and ready to be shipped at the beginning of May.

    Very nice! You may want to pm an admin (Steve probably) about selling, however.

    Fantastic that someone put forth the time and effort to revive these! One of the best modifications you can buy.

    I'll edit this when I get to a pc. If it's on the other board then he's a vendor right?
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    As stated above, PM Steve the admin to get vendor status. Until then I've removed the pricing and ordering info. The vendor rates for small vendors are very reasonable, but it wouldn't be fair to the other vendors here who have paid to allow you to promote and sell this otherwise.

    I'm not a vendor, not the one selling, or profiting from this, I just gave up the file to have these made and gave input for changes to the original.

    I apologize for posting this on here, I just thought it was something a lot of members could benefit from.

    speng.us is who I went through to have these made.

    Hey man, no need to apologize, we just require that if something is being sold in quantity and is using the social network of the forum for a buying audience, that the board receives some support in return, that's all.

    Oh ok, got it. Well the owner of the company who made the fuel pump covers doesn't have a large product line for G8s, or anything with an LS in it, so I was trying to get the word out about these.

    With that being said, I work out of town 3 weeks out of the month and have offered my car up to him as a prototyping car.

    I'm going to start a new thread asking what parts are G8 owners interested in that either aren't being made, or can be made better. I have also found him a cts-v, and working on getting a camaro , and SS for more parts. He's a great guy, local to me, and used to be the lead fabricator/designer for a pretty large and well known performance shop for high end sports cars prior to venturing off on his own.

    It's a beautiful piece, and someone knows their 3d cad very well. I appreciate any products folks are still building parts for our cars. If there is a web business selling these in their web store, you may post the link to that. Any person having ongoing selling in the forum, must have some kind of VIP status or be a vendor. If you need anything else, you can pm one of the Admins, or myself.

    Thanks,
    Ray
    Rest in Peace Charlie!

    Check this out "you know where", and I say that because I consider this place home. The pics of this guy's operation are fantastic.
    Our cars should have come with an access to the fuel pump, and knowing how manufacturing costs are kept to a minimum, it would have been nowhere close to this kind of quality.
    Worried about cutting your floor? Forget it! I'm so anal, I kept the chunk I cut out so I'd have all the parts the car ever came with.
    A half blind old man with aviation snips, some one inch c-clamps from HFC and a cordless drill can do it in no time.
