Ever lose a valve stem cap?

I guess that's better than my previous solution -- hanging around gas station air pumps looking for the caps that other people lost!
Sure beats a trip to the store!

Instructions

Print. Remove from print bed. Walk out to car. Screw on the cap. :-p

There are no internal threads. The first time you use it the stem will cut the threads into the cap.

...so be careful how you align the cap with the stem the first time! ;-)

I found my wife's car and mine had two different stem diameters. You may have to slightly adjust the internal diameter to make it best fit your car. There's a variable, "intdia", and a comment inside the OpenSCAD file for this.
