    Brushed Aluminum Gas Cap

    Has anyone heard of a aftermarket brushed aluminum and preferably black, gas cap cover we can buy for our F-Body cars? I've seen them for the newest Mustangs, but never for our cars. I'd be interested in getting one. Am I alone? If enough of us are interested, maybe something might change....

    That might be cool but i'd like to see one on first. Don't our cars have a slight curve in the gas door? It may not look right to get a flat one, but if a company integrated a curve that went with the quarter panel it might look cool.

    Thanks....My wifes S10 Truck is a 2001 and it's gas cap is flat (no finger lip like on our cars) but rather there is a indent into the body to place your finger, I would much rather have that. I know it's a small detail, but why in the world would GM make that stupid lip stick out on a smooth body like ours, and on a truck that's anything but aero have such a nice design. Ideally I wish it had a lever on the inside to pull (like my cheap ass DD Kia Rio) does and have it be completely smooth like the Vette! But since it doesn't, I was searching for some aftermarket ideas, and came up with the brushed aluminum idea.
