black plastic fuel door?

So I got this 67 FJ40 I'm turning into a trailer, it has a aux full tank in the rear and it has a square cutout behind the rear wheel well. The black plastic holder for the fill neck is missing, so I have a square hole with a fill neck in the middle of it (looks like shit)
So the question is where do I get the missing holder ??
Or do I just fab one up?

Last summer I saw a FJ40 pulling an FJ40 tub / converted / trailer
and it was bitchin. The guy did a nice job and painted the trailer to match his Cruiser. It was a sweet setup !

I've got the remains of a tub in my bone yard and I always wanted to do the same type of trailer project but it'll never happen....too many projects and not enough time.

you can build a trailer out of a heep but it'll still be a heep

Here's one of my favorite examples of what you're talking about. This is just a COOL setup.

There a possible solution for the filler neck hole that you have......






cover it with some diamond plate.

Yea thats what im doing(yellow cruiser pic), I'm keeping the rear and front fuel tanks in it so I need the fuel door/filler neck holder thingie.
Going to paint it the same as my rig , put diamond plate on the corners and order the same rims for it as well, so it should look sweet.
Had a friend tell me I should have personal plates on the trailer that say TOWZILA on is seeing on my plates on my rig say CRUZILA, can you get personal plates for a trailer??
I'm also useing a military style pintle and ring for the hitch so it will go anywhere. The trailer will be spring over to match the height of my rig and I'm keeping the stock axle in it for emergency trail spares ( ie. thirdmember, axles) any other ideas you guys can think of??

Thanks,

-Scott
