I may have missed the gas cap you were looking at but I loved the mazda cover I saw in your link. Reminded me of my honda cover... Keeps the gas guzzlers from looking for my fuel and its a remote opening switch from the inside of the car, Umm, just like my honda LOL Oh, and it allowed me to have a nice fuel cell without having to open the trunk to filler-up JR
I got tired of the gasoline spilling down the side of my fender. So I moved the filler neck into the trunk. I mounted an unlead type filler neck into the wheel well. The new style nozzels stay hooked into the filler neck and I don't have to hold it in place.
Where do you find the primed caps? Figure I should get one painted with the car while I am at it.. Can always get another chrome one!
I bought mine from Chevy2Only and was very disappointed. All they did was spray self-etching primer on a chrome (stainless?) cap. I could see small flakes around the cross-bar when I opened the box. So, I took apart the cap and sandblasted it, then made a cardboard 'stand' out of a box so that I could have the bar and cap primered and painted separately.
Turned out great! After living with a chrome cap for years, I'm a LOT happier with the way the left side of my car looks!!!
