Does the SSR have the same fuel door and opening size (internal and external) as the Trailblazer?


As you probably know by now I have a fatal attraction to overengineered precision works of art.
This company (I am not affiliated) is off the scale when it comes to fuel doors (check out their VIP area, unbelievable).
They have fuel doors for Trailbazers for sale in Japan and can supply here in the US but I am trying to research the fuel door on our SSRs, figuring that it is probably an off the shelf item shared with the Envoy.Trailblazer.

Who wins the prize (I figure you have to be a really sick SSR nut to know this one)?

Ok Ok Ok. I'm sold. I've been buying so much for my 06 Black Tie I might as well buy something else. Thanks for the find.

You know that I love you 66 like a sister, but, have you looked at how they design and produce these fuel doors? All Sales is like a Yugo. Pro-fit is like a z06 Vette in comparison. The Pro-fit has a patent on its door mechanism. The difference in money is significant. The design and engineering is the "best of" product.
Does anybody have an answer to the question?

I have one of the AMI (AllSales Manufacturing) fuel doors on my 05 Ricochet Silver SSR with chrome wheels. I have part # 6095CL (Chrome / Locking). It looks great and functions very well. In fact AMI is located about three miles from my house. I didn't know that until I received my fuel door where it lists their address in Shingle Springs, CA.

I am just not a big fan of the chrome look! Thats just me! I think if anyone wants it , likes it, they should get it!

The door is different because the surface of the metal is a different shape. The diameter is the same. If you put an mechanically styled, engineered part in as a replacement, the shape of the surface probably won't matter.

Trailblazer gas door

I put an aftermarket chrome Trailblazer fuel door on my SSR. You have to drill a couple of holes to make it fit, but it looks just fine. Cost about $30 at Advance Auto Parts and is just fine after a year of use.

Trailblazer fuel door pics

Tex, pictures please!
Mike,

Here are some pictures of the gas door. Sorry I was too lazy to wash the car before taking pictures. It looks better when it is clean. On the picuture with the door open, you can barely see two bolts. This is where I had to drill holes in the lip to attach the fuel door. All the other screws around the perimeter are cosmetic.

Not that I know of, but if you'll let me practice on your SSR, I'd like to learn. :jester
