Hi everyone I'm new to this site. I have a question I hope you can help me with. I need a 71 Mach I honeycomb panel. I have been told there is a difference between the 71 Mach I with the pop open gas cap and the 72-73 panel with the twist on gas cap. Is this true or will the 72-73 panel work on my 71 with the pop open cap. Thanks, this is a great site.

The pop open cap is larger in diameter than the regular cap. Thhe chrome on the honeycomb panel is notched to compensate for the size difference. I think if you try to mix either way it wont look right...
BTW, I just bought a honeycomb panel with some other parts and once I have it and check to make sure its ok I would sell it.

FYI, My 72 has its orginal cap and orginal honeycomb panel, and its a pop open, so you could get it... Not sure if it interchanges w/ the standard cap though.
