Barrus fuel tank - Replacement cap & painting

I'm trying to tidy up a couple of MOD grey Barrus tanks, replacing the internal hose and connections etc.

I could do with a replacement screw on fuel cap for one of them, does any body have a spare?

Would like to spray both tanks black as I have seen others do this (A1an?), what paint and prep is recommended?

Thanks for the tip. The tanks look superb!
If you can supply me with what I need just PM me with the cost and I could always pop in when I'm passing next week!
