86 E30 325e Gas filler locking specs for the drill holes

Posted by lawford1 
Hi all
Can anybody help me, I am trying to find a template for the drill holes on the gas filler locking mechanism as my car must have had a repair in the past and no holes were drilled for the locking pin or the screw's.
Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.
I do not know of any where that kind of detail might be. Best option might be to "borrow" a similar car from a friend or junkyard and just measure and photo the area you need details about.

That sounds like a good plan smileys with beer
Rick,

Don't you have one in the driveway(sort of covered with weeds)?

Surely a quick trip wit a tape measure couldn't hurt :razz:

I know; I know...what measurements do I take confused smiley
I hope the reason you are doing this is not because some of the go juice was liberated from your tank...

I'm thinking that the lock mechanism mounting holes will be behind the liner inside. That panel is difficult to remove or I would just take a picture and post it too.
