    I think a fog decal on a normal sized defroster switch would be a better look.

    Josh - Any up close photos on your mounting? Do you have custom brackets?

    nothing special. Outer two rock screen upper mounting bolts used along with the supplied brackets in the fog lamp kit.

    Gas cap cross over?

    Do we know of a suitable gas cap cross over? Like a make and model of vehicle that I could reference when walking into an auto parts store?

    I don't need the locking one as I don't have a gas flap hood. Mine is a bit crusty looking underneath and I thought it might not be a bad idea to ensure that it is sealing well.

    If you haven't already looked the ones from DMCH are actually really nice. The site lists them as an improved part so I'm not sure if they are a direct crossover or a reproduction.

    http://store.delorean.com/p-6705-gas-cap.aspx

    The photo shows the handle part as grey in color so I was planning to remove the lower latch, spring, and seal and swap it over to my original black fuel cap. To my surprise when it arrived it was black and was pretty much identical to my original cap so I just installed it as-is.

    It won't help in an emergency if you're on the road and need a quick replacement, but if that's your concern you can always stash a spare somewhere.

    Thanks Mark. I agree the DMCH one looks good and would be fine. And it isn't an emergency, thankfully.

    The real issue is that with the exchange rate to Canadian dollars, everything ordered and then shipped from the US comes to about double of what it shows as the price on the webstore. This is higher on smaller orders and less so on bigger orders. Needing one thing or another here and there doesn't justify the minimum shipping costs. Not until you have a bunch of things to get all at once. I don't mind doing this, but having local options, in my own currency, is helpful. Especially generic items like gas caps or batteries or brake pads, etc. I've always bought my car parts through the recognized vendors, but there is a reality to the costs being unnecessarily high going over the border. Understandable?

    Yeah in your situation it sounds like you'd save quite a bit sourcing parts locally. I did a search and found an old DMCTalk.com thread that looks like it would be helpful. You can see if any of these part numbers hit at your local auto parts store:
