    Anyone know who sells a nice purdy gas cap for a 77? I can get the stock ones all day long but I don't want a stock truck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm going with the billet alluminum inside on the dash and would like something that would be close to match.

    I bought it from a man on ebay. It is a sparco fuel cover. Kind of pricey, but i guess you better doit right the first time. I dont have any pics of the cap on the truck when it was all painted and finished. Ill try and get some up later.

    Sorry I haven't got back to this thread I started. Work just killed me this week. Then Sat had to bleed a clutch on a Ranger and then onto a harmonic balancer on a Grand Cherokee. I haven't even got the chance to turn a wrench on my own truck yet and it's now Sun night. Man, I really like the pic above. It adds a great touch of class. That thing's 139 bucks. I was trying to stay within 50 or so bucks for now. Now I wish you hadn't shown it to me cause knowing I can't get it anytime soon is gonna get me in the dumps. Thanks! HAHA JK. Really would like to see how it looks against the new paint tho. Bet it looks cool.

    patch in the tank filler of a '78+ K5, it should have the square door. should clean up that cap nicely.
