My new custom faux gas cap. Let me know what you think!!
3/16" thick billet aluminum. 4 1/16" in diameter. Should have it in about a week. Can't wait. :kooky:

The badge alone.

Some minor modification to the mounting surface. I had to sand down 4 raised areas under the surface of the original badge. I think they were there to line up the badge with the surround. I ran some fishing line under the surround piece and carefully started to pull it up to remove it from my blackout panel. This procedure works on the standard faux gas cap that comes on the regular trunk lid. Be careful because once it pops off you don't want it to hit the ground. I then cleaned the area with rubbing alcohol.

Final Outcome :bigthumbsup

I like it; love how you integrated the red, white, and blue from the original pony emblem. But what are you gonna do if you UP the horsepower :)

the kit is rated at 475 FWhp. so i wonder if he added a 100 shot of N2O.
that would put him in the ball park.
