Gas cap painted

Well I did it. Painted the stock gas cap. That grey was killing me. I had a can of black gloss sitting in the shed so I went for it. Removed the cap no problem, cleaned the surface good, taped the key hole, removed the rubber grommet from around the key hole and sprayed it last night. Picked up a set of red anodized screws for the cap on eBay and put it back on this afternoon. Pic below.

Black and red is my color scheme just small doses of red less is always more.

Be very careful when you put gas in. As soon as gas drips on it it's going to bubble/melt/dissolve. Rustoleum does not hold up to gas.
