    My VIN:    6313

    Pic doing the swap of my grooved hood for the gas flap hood. Gas flap is going on the TesLorean. This will become the location of the electric charge port for the car, which means I don't have to have the hood open when charging the batteries.

    A gas flap makes charging more convenient and without having to modify the exterior of the car to accommodate a charge port. Other options were behind the front grill (as DMCH did on their electric conversion) or in the license plate surround.

    Many thanks to VideoBob.

    As a fan of the gas flap hood, I'm so happy to see that this hood is going to a good home!
