Im not 100% sure. I didnt have one to try them on. I know on the newer G35x like IPx his windshield cap is different.

Once your buddy can get the blue to match my car color, I'm all over this. How long does it take to get done once order is placed?

It should take about 4 weeks tops. I will make sure he gets the blue a bit darker. Do you still want the Z logo on it? What I will do is give them one of my Anodized Gallery Bolt washers to go by that color.

I confirmed that only the power steering and the coolant overflow caps will work.

Do you really want one for the Windshield washer as well. If so the first one will be very expensive do to the time to develop it on the cad program and on the CNC machines. Usually the first go around usually takes a couple of times to get it right on the CNC machine.

Anyone else out there interested in these? I will be putting the order in @ the end of the month. This might not be available again for a long while. Also I wont be needing a down payment to start the job. I will eat the cost to start the job. Then you will have to pay in full when the parts are available.

I will put you on the list. So you know for the '07 Z's with the dual intakes I can only get the Power Steering & Radiator caps made.

Also with the black what I can do to get some contrast is to have the sides cut last so it will show bare aluminum. I will have pics of what im talking about when I get back home from Oklahoma City on Friday nite.


add the Z logo and try to get the blue darker for sure.

I am working on that with him. I will be giving one of my blue washers off my car so they can color match it.

hey djaypinoy


do you have any pics of the polished and chrome caps yet?

Nope sorry I dont have any chrome ones made. Im out of town and I forgot to take pics last week. I did sell some polished ones to zero (simon) on here this past weekend. Maybe he can take a quick pic or tell you how they look. To me they are pretty shinny for being polished.

Alright this offer is now CLOSED. Everyone that replied or PM'd me back on what they like I have placed your order. Give it about 4 weeks for it to be complete since the shop is busy with other jobs since they layed some people off. I also sent a sample of a blue washer that I had under my hood so that they can match it. He said the price might go up but wasnt 100% sure and will get back to me on it.

Mike your gonna be okay with the Red since it matched to some other stuff he had laying around the shop.


Hopefully I will be able to offer this again if the Big Boss of CZ will let me.
