Review & Install Video
Hey, guys. I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com. Here is my quick review of the Putco Chrome Fuel Door Cover available for your 2009 and 2014 F-150. In this video, we're going to cover a few basic things with the Putco cover here in regards to materials, what it's going to do to your overall styling, where it's going to fall on the price scale, and finally what it takes to get installed onto your truck. Honestly, guys, this is going to be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. No tools required whatsoever just simply peel and stick, and we'll have a little bit more info on that later.
So, this product right here is basically right in Putco's wheelhouse. They've been making truck accessories for 40 plus years now, mainly of the chrome variety, but recently it started branching out a little bit more to some auxiliary lighting and have even released a high end line known as their Black Platinum series. But all that new stuff aside, the Chrome Fuel Door and other chrome truck accessories is again, what Putco has really built their brand on over the last four decades. And that's the part we're focusing on here today.
Now again guys, this is a cover. It's not a full replacement, so therefore Putco went with their durable automotive grade ABS plastic for the basic build before finishing off everything in their chrome plating process. Now, this chrome should match any existing chrome on your truck just fine from the factory. But if you add anything in the future, it should match that as well, whether it be from Putco or somewhere else. And this is definitely going to be one of those parts for the chrome lovers out there, right? If you just want to add chrome everywhere on your truck, or maybe you're just looking to add a few select parts here and there, the Chrome Fuel Door Cover is going to be a great and relatively inexpensive way to add a little bit more flash to an otherwise boring area.
As far as styling, well again, if you really dig that chrome look and you just can't get enough, I do think you're going to enjoy this part from Putco. Now, the basic aesthetics here or appearance, you've got some detail going around the outside of the cover itself. You got a few dimples here in the middle to break up the look a little bit, and then finally Putco as the raised portion just to make opening the fuel door a little easier.
Now, one of the best things about this Fuel Door Cover from Putco is the price. Typically, you're going to find the Putco stuff to fall on the more affordable side of the price range and that is going to be the case here with their cover, falling right around $40, which in the world of aftermarket truck accessories, is pretty affordable.
Another thing prospective buyers might enjoy about the Putco Fuel Door Cover is the ease of install. Now, as I quickly mentioned at the very top of this video, guys, you're going to be looking at a very straightforward, very easy peel and stick install here, no tools needed whatsoever. So again, a very soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and maybe a few minutes from start to finish.
As far as the peel and stick installs, you're just going to want to make sure everything's nice and clean because ultimately that's going to make for a nice, secure and tight bond over the years. So, go crazy with that alcohol prep pad, wipe down your factory fuel door nice and good just to get off any of the dirt, dust or wax that might be on there. Once everything's all cleaned off, simply remove the protective backing on the pre-installed 3M tape which is already located on the back of the cover for you, and then adhere it carefully to your fuel door.
As for my final thoughts on the Putco Fuel Door Cover here guys, well again, a very simple part that should appeal to any truck owner out there who really enjoys the look of chrome and just can't seem to get enough. This thing will add a little bit more detail to an otherwise boring area and it's going to be very easy on your wallet in the process.
