This truck just had a female connector hanging down low to plug into. But being that it was a female connector, try to imagine what the extension cord would look like. Hmmm. A male connector on each end....
I hunted all over town for a piece of flat black plastic to make the ring adapter for attaching the outlet to the fuel door box. This oil drain pan was a good choice. I cut 4 ring adapters out of it just to have spares. I was able to easily CNC these parts out due to a an add on piece of software that I bought with my CNC software, Mach3. This add on made it so I could specify the triangle bolt pattern and the other features machined into the ring adapter with great ease.
That large black plastic part is the fuel door box that was missing from the #2 truck. So I ordered it and many other parts from a local GM dealer. Also shown is the outlet and the CNC'd ring adapter.
Here is the finished outlet install. All nice black parts. Even the screw heads are black. I was in a black out mood last night. The ring adapter is a bit too flexible, so it will get a second ring adapter to stiffen it up a bit.
