Some damned nice work right there. I'd say you nailed that re-creation!I worked on my custom 1971 Shelby Europa gas cap. I couldn’t find anything I liked for my build, so I just made one. The cap is 95% finished, I have some fine detail work to do on the face and I need to decide how I want to mount the Shelby emblem. My only real choices are with barrel nuts or 3M tape. I’m leaning toward stick-on, but I’m still on the fence about that part. For now just mocked up with tape.
I knew the gas cap was going to be a sticking point on my build and it would really irritate me every time I drove it knowing the gas cap was a weak point. So I spent a ton of time researching the part, looking at photos, emailing Dr. Harvima and Wolfgang to work out the details. IMHO, I think I got it right.
Here's an original. They are a cast part, basically made only for the original Shelby Europa's.
