    Billet Brake Reservoir Caps

    These will be replacement caps not covers for the brake fluid reservoir. I'll be doing a run of these tomorrow so if anyone wants one let me know. Again this is not a group buy, no minimum. I'll be making this for myself and ill make some extras for whoever else wants one. I'll have a final price on this tomorrow after I run the first part.

    Here's a few quick renderings of the different logos, Im using the same ones as the engine caps that way if you want a theme going everything can match. I'll do the XR7 tomorrow, I added a "3.8 SUPERCHARGED" and I might do another cap with the COUGAR EMBLEM. The real caps will look nicer smooth cuts not all jagged. I've been working off a loaner computer with a crappy graphics card and old CAD software.

    I was thinking the same thing! I'm chroming/powdercoating my whole motor right now and the huge yellow reservoir bugs me.

    Does it at least still have a good decal on it?

    Sorry, I'm not that interested in a cap for the brake reservoir. Any chance you'll lid the radiator cap?

    I'll see if I can come up with a clean/used one. Someone here used to have new...helps to distract from the yellowing, I think.
