I made myself a cover over the weekend that some people have found interest in. Im starting this thread to offer it to whoever wants one. If i'm posting in the wrong section, moderators please let me know.

It's a cover that fits over your factory oil cap, I'll be using some silicone to attach mine but im sure you can put a strip of 3M double stick tape on the inside. The price is $36 POLISHED and $46 CHROMED plus $5 for shipping ill be using USPS priority. Pay shipping only once for two caps. Send Payments via PayPal to greggfoo@gmail.com

**UPDATED INVENTORY**
I have the following caps left:

1- SC POLISHED

1- XR7 POLISHED

1- TBIRD POLISHED

2- TBIRD CHROME

I'll do another run in a few weeks.

This is not a group buy so if you want one just speak up so I can make enough. I'll have them made over the weekend and be ready to ship out POLISHED on Wednesday 12/4 and CHROME Monday 12/9.

If anyone is interested in a different finish leave a comment or send me a private message so I can look into it. I built this cover based off the stock oil cap on my 1990 SC, im assuming they're the same for all years but if not someone please make it known.

The pictures show the cover POLISHED, ill add some CHROME pictures when I have some.

Post#28 shows the cap with the T-BIRD logo.
Post#30 shows the cap with the XR7 logo.

The following people will be getting a cap:
1. Mad Mikey- SC polished
2. SCcrazy- SC Polished
3. K.M.T.- SC Polished
4. Superchicken89- SC Polished
5. David Neibert- SC Polished
6. BadCompany - TBIRD Polished
7. nanatothesixth- SC Chrome/ TBIRD Chrome
8. Blown38 - SC Polished x 2
9. SuperdadSC- SC Polished
10. J dot Miller - XR7 Chrome

I'll be using a USPS Small flat rate box to make it easy, im sure I can fit 2 in a box. Tomorrow ill check how many I can fit to save on shipping for the guys who order more than one.

Thanks everyone for your orders! I really appreciate it!

These caps are for a good cause, all the proceeds are going towards getting my T-bird back on the road (backed up dmv fees). More parts to come too!

How much for unpolished? (I'd probably send mine to my powder coater)

Slater85
11-26-2013, 08:00 PM
Joe- I can leave one blank if you want, I didnt forget about the N/A guys, I'm already working on one with a bird on it just like the hood emblem. If you want to see the bird ill post it up here today or tomorrow.

slowpoke- what did you have in mind? I can personalize with names and fonts or if you wanted a custom logo, email it to me greggfoo@gmail.com so I can take a look and get you a price.

It will be a small price difference to offset the time/program but im very reasonable.

If its something I can make a few of like 3.8 or SCCOA Ill waive the extra fees if a couple guys buy the same one.

Jacob- $30 raw plus shipping

Slater85
11-28-2013, 03:20 PM
Sure, I'll draw something up today and post it up.

I'm engraving all the caps on Saturday so whoever wants a SC, TBIRD, and now an XR7 cap let me know by then. I'm making a few extras but after I run out that's it.

I'll make some more caps later and keep these on the shelf for whoever misses it this time around. I don't know how soon that will be because I want to move on to my next projects and finish as many SC parts before the end of the year. The holiday season gives me a lot of free time at work to work on prototypes since our normal products we produce are seasonal.

I was expecting the caps yesterday but I just got them back from Polish right now. This delay unfortunately will push the chrome shipment back until Tuesday latest Wednesday. All labels have been printed and im getting these boxed up. All paid polished orders will be leaving tomorrow, priority mail so 1-2 days depending on your location. Thanks

Am I too late in ordering one SC that is polished? I want it to match the DIS cover that I hope to get from you as well.
I to am in the process of doing a little bling to my thing and little items like this make the engine bay stand out.

36&5? I can do. LMK.

id be interested in one natural no polish no chrome. in tbird logo




are you starting with a raw chunk of aluminum or are you starting with a blank cap? just wondering.

Kind of start with both in a sense. I engrave on pre made cap blanks, but I make the engine cap blank from raw pieces of aluminum. I've already engraved all the blanks, so in a few weeks I'll cut up some more bar stock and make more blanks to do the different logos.

What are you guys using to hold this cover to the stock cap ? I was planning to use some high temp RTV, unless someone has a better method.

David

PS: Greg...please hang onto one of the polished SC caps just in case mine doesn't show up by Saturday.

I anticipated needing some RTV, etc,. but the cap pressed right down nice and snug onto my stock cap so nicely that I don't see any need for anything at all to keep it there. YMMV.

Slater85
12-12-2013, 04:35 PM
I'm gonna run some RTV on mine but like K.M.T said the caps are already really snug and hold themselves in pretty well.

I plan on using some ultra-black on mine, and I think that should hold it just fine. I don't know if it is just differences in manufacturing tolerances, but mine definitely did not have any friction with the cap at all, so I would prefer some kind of adhesive to make sure it doesn't go anywhere. If you never wanted it to come off again, you could epoxy it on there, but I think the RTV is the best method because sometimes the ratcheting mechanism inside the cap breaks, and with RTV it will be easy enough to pop the aluminum cap off, and install it on a new cap.

Yup, just a black sharpie. I was planning on using a paint marker, but the black sharpie was close by, and it came out pretty good. If it doesn't hold up, I'll re-do it with the paint marker.
