Default 'Racing' gas cap for Cruiser

Has anyone found a good 'racing' style gas cap for the PT? One similar to the Challenger or the old Chargers. It could be a plastic or metal cover for the gas door, like the ones I see in the various aftermarkets, but I want something that looks like this; this is a 3D model I've made that, if I can't find a good one already out there, I'm going to print in 3D ABS plastic and then have chromed.

There are actually a few universal true "racing" style fuel caps or Le mans style fuel caps available. But your would need to custom fit it to a PT Cruiser.

Look for AC Cobra or Mustang Le Mans fuel caps on ebay.
Maybe even "flip Top" fuel caps traditionally used on boats like the fuel tanks on Flat Bottoms or Hydro's

Well if you do go with your's. I would suggest you go a little less generic. Meaning the fuel thing. Something that says I'm a one off , custom for this car kind of thing. The design itself looks great.

Thanks; the center design is flexible - I thought about making a "P/T" centerpiece based on the "R/T" design (I'd replace ALL my badges with that, frankly, and I just might print them up ).

It would make a great step by step picture write up. I know I would be looking in on that. Kool.

You could start with one of these:

(third one - stainless)

Then, add an "arm" or latch-look on it...
