Question Mopar Chrome fuel door question...

So I ordered a chrome fuel door cover from (online retailer, specializing in MOPAR parts) and after 3 tries, they finally sent me the correct cover. They kept sending me one for a durango (Which I would not have known that until I tried to install it, the mounting bracket holes didn't line up). Now that I have the correct part I am still a little disappointed in it.

I was wondering, for those of you that have the MOPAR chrome fuel door, does it seem like it covers the access hole correctly? In other words, the original fuel door had a an even gap of about 3 to 5mm around it. The chrome fuel door seems to have a much wider gap. Wide enough that I can actually see the black plastic inside the fueling area which I could not see on the original one.

And yes, I have properly trimmed the rubber door stops. It sits flush with the vehicle just fine. It just seems like the cover is not the right circumference to match the Commander's fuel port like the original one did.

Am I just being too picky?

Mine was the same way, I had to bend it a little to get it even but it has more of a gap than the original one. Here is a pic.

Re: Mopar Chrome fuel door question...

Mine fits that way too, the gap is consistent all around. I think it looks good.

Re: Mopar Chrome fuel door question...

I looked at mine and it looks like it fits evenly all around. I don't recall seeing anything inside as I did trim the rubber bumpers. As long as its even all around, Im sure your ok.

Re: Mopar Chrome fuel door question...

Thanks for the reply posts from everybody. It looks like that is just the way it is. I just wanted to make sure since I had such a hard time getting the correct part. I thought maybe I had the wrong one still. Mine looks about the same as what is shown in the pic from SHORTMAG.
