Coolant Pressure Cap Sticker (Better Looking!)

I've always hated how the stock pressure caps looked (all that yellow in a silver and black engine bay), and I was inspired by the front nose logo off Ayrton Senna's Lotus 98T (Chapman's initials... what I equate to be Lotus' version of Ferrari's prancing horse).

So I made a custom coolant pressure cap label that is actually pretty neat-looking (before-and-after photos below). These are made of high-quality glossy white film sticker paper; they're durable and weather-resistant (heat and wetness) and can be used for all models utilizing the Toyota engine coolant reservoir pressure cap (Elise, Exige, Evora).

Lastly, I’ve slightly upped the recent price point so as to cover the cost of handling, postage, as well as the time to package everything up properly.

$3.75 each, shipped.
Please PM if interested.
Thanks!

Thanks for everyone's interest so far.

Here's another look at Senna's glorious 98T (with a clearer view of the logo I used in front):

You guys rock

I've received loads of interest in these little guys, and still have a good bunch left; it's humbling

Just as a quick FYI for everyone, today's been crazy busy at work. So if I'm slow to respond to your inquiries, no fear - everyone who I've responded to up to now and who's left a PayPal deposit will get their labels in the mail by this afternoon at the latest.

Also, a note about label application: I removed the old stock label from my coolant cap completely (using my fingernail + Goo Gone). Once it was clean, the new label goes right on, no problem. I would highly recommend applying the new labels this way, and NOT sticking it over the stock yellow label.

Thx!

*** UPDATE ***

Lotusiers,

As of right now, if I've received your payment via PayPal, your coolant cap labels have been mailed out. The response on these has been absolutely tremendous, so thank you again!
