I am interested in converting my 69 Camaro to put the fuel door in the tail panel like the 67-68.  Has anyone done this?  Is it just a matter of installing the components from a 67-68?  I would ultimately like to install the fuel door on the tail panel and use a brushed billet aluminum fuel door with the rivets/bolts around the perimeter.

I have seen this done before and it is not an easy conversion. Trying to use 67/8 parts requires extensive sheetmetal modification to the tailpanel and center trunk floor areas they are different between the 67/8 & 69 models. You could mount a flip top lid from a Challenger or Charger to the tailpanel and then fabricate a fuel filler neck/hose to connect to the gas tank, but still there is going to be some fabrication and sheetmetal work involved...................RatPack........
