I got a used truck cap for my Silvy about 2 years ago for $400 that is practically stolen at that price considering the model I have lists new at $1600 and I'm kind of getting sick of it. I like it and don't mind the look but I'm just kinda "eh" about it, especially since the color is a little off. Nothing I do in the area of buffing it to try and get the color back up seems to work which drives me absolutely insane and I know I'm being a picky little bitch considering you can only notice the color deviation when the sun hits it and you're at certain angles but I know it's there and it bugs me, plus I really don't utilize the cap like I expected I would or like I used to. I'm thinking of selling the cap and getting a hard folding be cover like a Bakflip G2 or something along those lines and the money from the cap will pay for the cover but I'm on the fence about it in the worst way.

So should I keep the cap or sell it?

Sounds like your best bet is to sell it and spend the cash on hookers and blow.

I'm not 100% sure but I think caps and covers still fit from the NNBS (08-13)

Dude I'm picky as fuck, but that looks perfectly fine. Sell it for $900 if you don't plan on ever hauling anything that needs to stay dry back there
Camera can't catch the difference but in the sunlight I can see it plain as day. Yes, I'm that picky.

After hitting it with 3-4 different compounds for gel-coat fiberglass and other surface types of compound I got it close but it ain't perfect.

as long as you're into it cheap and aren't sure, just grab a roll up tonneau for the summer and throw the cap back on in the winter.

I'd keep it personally. when I had my truck I was always hauling shit around that wouldn't fit under the tonneau. I hated not being able to lock it up because of that. I always had boat stuff rolling around the back that would have been stolen.
