Default Oil Filler Cap

Trying to dress up my engine bay a bit more and been thinking about an oil filler cap.

Been looking for a dimensional cap like the
Blitz: and
HSK: , but apparently these are not threaded for the Miata.

Not looking for the flat ones like these:

Any leads or info on the thread size would help much.

Thanks in advance.

I took it off.

^--- Mmmm.. looks nice, but I'm skeptical about ebay items now.

I bought one of the HKS ones from ebay:
HKS Oil Cap Mazda Miata MX3 MX5 MX6 Protege RX7 RX8 JDM:eBay Motors (item 300352412544 end time Oct-29-09 12:54:58 PDT)

But the thread doesn't fit.

I love when I can burn the shape of my oil heated metal oil cap into my palm. Life is good. Of course, if you are into that kind of bling, I guess the local jiffy lube guy that will be changing your oil for you will probably put a rag on it.
