Re: Its time. My 66 frame off restoration
When I have done the shaved door handles in the past I have never had to use poppers. The pressure of the door seals always kicked them out enough. You only really need enough to get your hand in there to open the door, and in my experience it always did.
I use those gas caps to do flush mount caps when I do motorcycles. While I like your idea that cap has a crown to it, IMO you would need to flatten that cap out, preferably by machine, or it will stand out worse than the gas door. The cap itself is aluminum so it is soft and could be sanded. Just my opinion. Here is a pic of that cap that I used.
