    That is exactly how I located the holes to mount the adapter to the car. Would you be willing to post and share your info in my thread

    I first taped the template to the adapter so that it would stay in place. I then clamped it to a piece of scrap wood so that it would stay in place when I drilled it. A drill press would work a lot better.

    Test fit with stainless steel screws. I put a piece of tape to remind me this is the top.

    With it still mounted on the car I marked the holes for the gas cap and then drilled them in place.

    I took it back off and recessed the screw holes a little more. I sanded it with 600 grit and will shoot it with PPG single stage tomorrow. Too much black showing.

    And there you have it folks. Thanks Eric. Another fine presentation!

    One more picture required once the paint work is done eh?

    And yes it certainly does. Looks nice that is.
