Exclamation Painted Faux Gas Cap black

Hey guys I just wanted to share with you a weekend mod I worked on recently. I had previously plasti dipped the chrome piece of the gas cap black and didn't love how the flat black blended with the gloss of the surrounding deck lid. I took the time this weekend to remove the deck lid and properly paint the gas cap gloss black. I think it turned out well!

That does look nice.

So what did you do exactly?

You removed the whole faux gas cap, then taped off the center, then painted?

Did you sand it a little to help the paint bite? How many coats? Clear coat top?

I removed the whole decklid panel which is honestly a PITA. Then removed the gas cap and taped off the center. I cleaned it with mineral spirits and used the Krylon Fusion Plastic spray paint with 4 coats. Didn't sand it as this specific paint is designed to adhere to plastics without sanding.

I think it came out great, clear coat isn't a bad idea but even without it I believe it should last for quite a while.

If I could do it over I would leave it on the car, tape it off, and then cover the car and paint it that way. Would be much easier than dealing with the hassle of breaking the decklid tabs and removing the gas cap from it.
