Fuel caps in aluminum

Hi there. Im wondering if there is any interest out there in this fuel cap. Its been machined from solid aluminum, with a brushed finish.
Its for my S3 spider and the reason the plastic inner is there is because my original broke and ive used it for the thread. We have the measurements and thread pitch sorted for a 60 diameter spout (for S3 and perhaps S4?) and plan to machine the threads in as a pressed insert. I measured a mates S2 spider today and the spout is smaller, but we could make a different insert for those models and the cap still being the same. There is also the bayonet type, we plan to do an insert for that also.
If I get enough interest, ill post a price and see where we go from there.
The octagon and 3 wing parts are miniatures for other options.
Im planning to do an oil cap as well.
I have finished the cap in a clear coat to prevent corrosion. I looked at anodizing but its simply too expensive.
Please let me know your thoughts.

I would be interested in oil and gas caps 74 spider

(Little) Washington, NC Incorporated 1776
Red 1959 Spider Conrero Veloce 100,000 miles
sold 1966 ( I had no idea what I had there.)
Red 1967 Spider 100,000 miles sold 1974
Red 1987 Milano 100,000 miles sold 1994
Red 1969 Spider 109,000 Miles in the garage, Sold
Dark Blue 1974 Spider (arriving soon)

We need a law, one that says every male gets a 10 car garage on his 16th birthday so that when he is 60 years old he will never have to say "**** I wish I had never sold that car".
(No, I did not put those "****" up there the system did... )

Question: Do they really make Alfas in any other color then red?
Answer: Well they really do. I fell in love with a Dark Blue Spider on BAT.
I have not done over to the dark side, only the Blue side.
It took me 50 years to see the light..
