Everything is possible and limited only by the technical, financial and creative limitations of the tuner. If you come into the area of the bodywork, you will surely come up with something for the fuel cap, to bring it better into the overall picture of the tuning object. There are various ways to devote yourself to the fuel cap.
Types of Tank cover tuning for the car
On the one hand, there is the simple application of a sticker on the tank cap. The tank cap itself is not changed, just glued over. As a further variant, there is the exchange of the fuel cap for a different model and a different version that better suits the car. There are differences in terms of material, shape and color. There are, for example, tank cap flaps made of aluminum, carbon or stainless steel. The most extensive variant is the complete change and relocation of the tank cap, for example behind the rear light. This is often the case when a vehicle is to be professionally "cleaned". But constructive changes have to be made.
