Six Buck Gas Cap 'n Bung....

Picked up a cast brass 1" pipe plug and a 3" long threaded pipe nipple. Going to make a kick ass gas cap and bung all for under six bucks.
Five minutes on the lathe and it's looking awesome!!
Gave it a quick polish
Figured out how many threads I need for the cap and turn down the rest of 'em and the body. Then cut it off after the little step I made in it.
Creating that little step will give it a little something extra to weld to.
This thing looks wicked! It's going to look great with a gloss black tank.
I still need to make a petcock bung and weld that bitch in, then I can get on welding the new bottom in. Pics to follow.
