Well since the gas cap is a genmetal color stock and i have a black and silver theme going i figured ill paint the gas cap. I also took some 1/4" silver screws and put one in each of the divets on the edge of the gas cap. I think it turned out pretty good. What do you guys think of it?







And now some of it on the car

Great job with the painting. Doesn't look bad at all.
+1 on those screws also, they look good!

Yeah I agree it looks good, but, it really needs to be cleared and wet sanded

Looks really good and I love the idea of the screws. I just hope you got screws that will not rust out on you. Might want to replace them with stainless steel unless those are good enough/wont rust.

Exactly what I was going to say.

Unless my eyes are deceiving me, it looks like you have a flat-head mixed in.
Mine looks pretty identical but it was wet-sanded and cleared.
And it has the original allen head screws.
You have the right idea, just needs to be cleaned up a bit.

Ha yes you are right there is a flat-head b/c i droped one of the other screws and couldnt find it so i found that one and just used it. I figured you wouldnt be able to tell unless your really looking hard.

I would switch up the screws to allen heads that are more flush. Other than that, awesome!
:agreed: 100% Use chromed allen heads like the OEM alloy fuel door. Some wet sanding and clear coat would be a good idea but it looks acceptable as is. TruValue stocks the silver allen heads (well mine does at last).
