So this is actually functional? I thought it was just a joke.

Ooo you just reminded me to make myself a new one. Apparently mine doesnt seal tight enough, I am guessing its too small. I tried putting silicone around it and somehow it still leaks.

My bomb isnt the typical bomb like you guys'. I used a screw on cap with big threads (prob the problem), on top of this, its very small, around 4 inches if I remember right. I used the seal tape around the threads and tightened it to the point where I stripped the cap. I cement glued it. I siliconed it. Nothing works. I guess I have to make one just like everyone else.

That is awesome. I like how you spent more money on the skull caps and NOS stickers.

If I made one even if I still use my TPMS in my OEM wheels could I still roll with you guys or would I be a poser?
