Once that was set I checked it opened, closed and still aligned, I glassed over the bracket.
No other mods were done, the opened flap is right in front of the filler cap.
Thanks for making that clear - I had a vision of having to reach 'down a rabbit hole' and avoid dropping the cap into the void . Knowing the filler doesn't need to be altered is (to me) reassuring, because getting a seal on a pipe carrying fuel would appear to be difficult!
