I don't have my car at the moment, but I think hte bit you're missing is only a small wedge-shaped piece of plastic?

hey leon

let me know your price. ive bought 240k fender mirrors that lachlan had spares of. so you can ask him, im good for it. if anythin, if you have pictures of your 240k gas cap i would like to see how it is so i can try to make the missing piece myself or if its to hard ill end up buying yours.

Lachlan

if you ever get a chance to go the body shop to check out your car, would you be kind and snap a few photos of the backside of your cap, it will be greatly appreciated.

as for update on my car, the sr20det is now at my friends shop, my intercooler just came in today, its core size is 24x12x3. i sent out my ECU to get reprogrammed in canada so hopefully with all the parts im buying i will be able to get the car on the dyno and get about 400rwhp. im hoping next month we can start on the engine bay and body work. i havent found time to get working on it, but as soon i get some work done ill be sure to take photos and keep updating my progress.

thanks

As Alpa said its a wedge shape like an old ink eraser. Your lever is on wrong, you need to flip it over then the wedge with a spring behind it glides around the lock barrel. :geek:

so far problem solved, i just jammed the top of a pen into the lever and turned it over like what HKSZ said and it worked! its not the best thing but it will do for now, but i wouldnt mind buying the real thing,

thanks all,....

LACHLAN

Hey Mikey, here are some pics. It's a pretty simple mechanism, do you see how it works? The plastic bit locks over the latch on the body-part of the cap, like HKSZ said.

Hi Mikey,

just a quick question, are you mounting your IC in front of your radiator? if so are you also upgrading your radiator? i am just a little worried about airflow through to the radiator
