Painting the gas cap? I've just about gotten rid of all the other chrome on the bike but was wondering if anybody has tried to black out the cap.

No. Plasti dip is a rubber type "paint". No scratching what so ever. Still looks like new a couple months later.I am doing the same with my 09 custom. Just purchased some smoke glass so that will help.... When you used plasti dip on the oil cover, what happens when you slide the cover to expose the key hole? Does it scratch what you just painted?
Stuff is addicting isnt itYowsa! I sprayed my bezel with plasti dip today and it DOES come out rather cool. Hit it a little heavy in one spot with the second coat, but that spot is facing forward so no big deal. I should have bought a piece of textured fabric and waitied just till it was about to set up, then embossed a leather pattern into it. I don't think you would know it wasn't the same material as my Tank Bib. Gonna clean that up tomorrow, give it a fresh coat of black wax and then mount the Bezel back on. Won't be blinded by the son any more I tell ya. I need to look for a different thermometer to put on the bike and then tape and spray the Tachometer with the stuff. It's just like the black, anti-glare that fighters like the P-51, 47, 38, and so forth had. And like I said, it doesn't look a hole heckuva lot different then the bib.
I'll see if I can get a picture and show you what I mean.
