Thank - you. for the INJEN bottle I used this cap.

It squeezed tightly over the bottle. I don't use the wiper fluid often. So filling the bottle is not an issue to me.

I did not sand the bottle. Wish I would have now to at least remove some of the rough high manufacturing seems.

I washed it with soap and water, wiped with rubbing alcohol. Then painted it with adhesion promoter, then flat black paint, painted the INJEN with a bottle of IOM touch up paint, and completed it off with clear.
