    It all depends on where your gas tank is located, how you designed the interior, etc.
    I built a custom tank that sits inside of a framework that just inside of the rear body, about 2" from the 9" Ford rear end housing.
    Anyway, I looked at numerous caps and doors that could be used and decided on a small 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" door that is next to the drivers side rear window to fill my 17 gallon tank that my Nailhead can emty in to few of miles.

  7. [​IMG]I put a 48 chevy pickup tank that I sectioned 5 inches out of behind the back seat, and fill it through the top corner. 50 chev gas cap fits flush, and has the same contour as the cab corner. When the car is painted, the cap will be the same color.
