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 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

Filler door on the side


Filler neck to the 20 gal fuel cell

No Gas filler in fender

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.

That looks nice too!! Has anyone seen a round door from another car? I think round would look pretty cool too.

I agree, should be a much nicer piece for that type of money,and not look like something universal from Pep Boys.

I've seen the piece in person and it's definitely not Pep Boys.

It's really nice!

I just wonder why they would mount it and take a picture of it like that when they could hav easily fixed it with some spacers.

Wish they had a picture of a polished one mounted on a Nova. After seeing the straight on shot of the black one, I'm not too sure about it now.

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!!!
