popoff gascap security

Is there anyway to modify the popoff gascap to put a cap with a lock under it (directly on the opening)? I'd like to get the look but would prefer more secuity, and the standard locking gascap that you can get aftermarket looks kinda dorky. Is there a mod to flip the cap and then have to use a key to get the "cap under the cap" off.

Re:popoff gascap security

Interestingly enough, the repro pop-off gas caps available now require a seperate gas cap that must be removed after the pop-off is open. While I haven't tried to put a locking gas cap under a repro cap, I don't know why it would not fit, as the ears on the regular cap do stick out. One issue with the repro cap is that it protrude a bit further out than an original style pop-off cap, and that is identifiable when the CS/HCS fiberglass taillamp is in place. Hope this helps,

Russ
