Fuel Cap, Version 2

At the risk of being ridiculed for my ugly, original fuel cap (which was only temporary, and apparently I neglected to even take pictures of, although it can be seen behind the door in this picture), I decided to install a flush-mount "aviation-style" fuel cap. This one was purchased from Aircraft Spruce, and is the same one that comes standard with Van's RV airplanes.

Unfortunately, it required a completely new filler neck on the back side, even though it looks nearly identical to the original one.

Total Time: 13.0 hrs.
