    Default 306 gti6 fuel flap

    Hi guys I'm wanting to take the fuel flap off so I can take it to the paint shop to get some paint matched to the colour.
    But I can't figure out how to get it off.

    Anyone here got any advice?
    Cheers

    From memory, you need to remove the boot trim in order to get to the bolts. Failing that, you could supply the paint code on the lhs suspension turret in the engine bay.

    True I didn't think about that. Can any paint shop use the code?
    On the sticker it says KNQ.

    Sigma Blue? Nice colour. Yes, they should be able to match it. What needs painting?

    Wow sorry for the slow reply.
    I am gonna get it done properly after the holiday period when all the panel shops re-open. Just wanna put something on it now for fun.
    The current paint is badly faded and Pretty much needs bonnet and roof resprayed, with other small bits on the top of the hatch and rear quarters. I rang body shop seaford and they said they can match it with the code so gonna head there tomorrow.

    It will give me something to do over the holiday period a bit of fun

    I just got my sigma blue painted. It was pretty much the same as yours, faded bonnet, roof and hatch.
    Are you going to respray the entire thing? I only got those parts painted, so if you look carefully you can see a slight difference between new and old...

    Na if I can I will just get the bits that need doing not the whole lot. I'm not really wanting a show car finish

    Where abouts in Melb are you?
    If you don't mind me asking where did you get it done and how much was it ?

    I'm in Melbourne too and after a respray. Let me know how you go. I think I need a full respray as a lot of my panels are chipped and scratched
