What is the direction of the Lemans gas cap placement? Which way does the hinge and the release point . I've seen it many different ways.

My hinge faces towards the trunk. There's no wrong way, just make sure it doesn't hit the body when you open it.

Put the hinge on the left side, the latch on the right, as you face forward. This way it cannot hit the body when you (or someone else :eek: ) pop it open.

You can face it any direction, the originals face different ways. Any way you orient it, you can prevent it from hitting the body if you put a little stick on rubber stop underneath the cap edge so the hinge doesn't travel quite so far.

If you're going for the authentic 427 look, then I believe I've read it's supposed to be hinge to the back. Makes no sense, but that's how they were.
