remove gas filler door
 
may be a stupid question, but wanted to check the experts here.

Want to remove my gas filler door on my Exige and powdercoat it. Can this face plate be removed by the bolts like normal or is there a special way for removal from the back.

Thanks everyone.

The Al gas door is fastened only by the Allen screws.

You may want to put some masking tape on the back side (nuts), before you remove, as once you pull off the allen bolts, the nuts are free to fall, disappear, etc. and it is much easier to re-install if the nuts are right where they need to be.
