Anyone able to point me in the right direction....chasing something better looking than the standard engine oil cap...

Dont mind if its billet/chrome

Not a fan of the red/blue CNC ones as they have their great big ugly logo branded across the top...

Ive done a search around and only come across either getting the current one chromed or a Ford Racing breather cap whcih wasnt really what I was after...

The rocker covers a hot candy apple red and due to the custom seats and AV equipment in the car ive gone for the whole red/black theme....

Might just get mine sprayed/powder coated in black to match the car

I've got one of those red anodized CPC ones from Supercheap, ripped the centre sticker off and sprayed it black :lol:. I have the black and polished theme with red highlights under the engine bay on my EF so it doesn't look too bad, but as soon as i find a better one, it'll be gone..

I myself am not really a fan of the CPC as they stick up to higher for my liking and do look a bit ricer-ish. I quite like the look of the 'plazmaman' billet oil caps, but they are pretty exxy.

pretty sure i looked at billet ones the other day but cant remember where, maybe Ebay.
you could get them with the ford badge on them or whatever logo you wanted, didnt look to bad.
bugger my bad memory, it must have been on ebay.


well it might not have been on ebay, just had a quick look and couldnt find them.

Thanks guys will continue the search!! KWIKXR didnt realises the CPC bit was a sticker!! but yes not the right red for me...

I did look at http://www.plazmaman.com but wasn't sure if the B/F-Series caps were compatible....otherwise that would be the go.

If it makes it easier Mazda MX-6's, probes and telestars have the same oil cap pattern. I have a cnc one too I nicked off my MX-6 before I sold it lol
