GT40 Gas Caps

Hi

This is directed I guess at the American members of the forum. Have any of you ever purchased anything from a company called Mustalgia?

MUSTALGIA.COM Product List

Has anyone purchased any petrol caps from them in the past? It is just that they seem to be perpetually out of stock. Which is a shame as the ones they have illustrated on the web look fantastic.

Thanks.

Re: GT40 Gas Caps

Those caps are not correct and are bolted together out of parts and not cast.
The lid is flat but its to flat and not like the original.
The quality is good but the cap is wrong.

Thanks

Andy

Re: GT40 Gas Caps

Mustalgia deliver a well made product and ready to go with the obligatory locking caps. They also make nice original style door handles in billet.

To be fastidious about the details, the GT40 fuel filler parts should be cast in magnesium and come with a pair of tapered steel shims to set the fillers on a slope to match the profile of the body shell.
I don't see many out there installed properly.

Re: GT40 Gas Caps

Thank you all for your input. Im checking out the alternatives of which there seem to be quite a few. I am looking for the flat topped ones really, as they look better and by the sound of it that is a more authentic look. So thanks again.
