Hi, I've just gone through the forum looking for the thread for Misstress K's fuel cap repair pictures etc & can find nothing at all.
I think I need to do her mod as the cap key cover feels very loose & I don't want to have to buy a new cap!
Any help is appreciated!!!

Mistress K's thread LINK
The bit you were looking for was #3 in her thread, copied it for you.

and then i went nuts on saturday, april 8th, 2006 and did five mods in five hours!i started with the gas cap mod - you dissassemble the gas cap, and put loctite on the one little screw that retains the spring which keeps tension on the chrome keyhole cover. not doing this can lead to your cover winging away when the wind hits it!

Time: 10 minutes, tools needed: #2 phillips screwdriver, #1 phillips screwdriver (old and worn down is best - the threads on the tiny screw you need to loctite are not deep enough to accomodate the point of a brand new 'driver). my husband says only i would work on a gas cap with a lit cigarette in my hand *lol*
you can see how tiny the retaining screw is in this pic:
