    Just looking for some opinions here... I just put an older, weathered, dark gray bed cap on my white taco. I'm a college student on a budget...How does it look as is?

    Doesn't look that bad as is. I wouldn't waste the money on painting it to match a 16 year old paint job.

    I would paint it black. I did the same to mine, wasn't terribly expensive or hard. My cap was an ugly Burgundy color

    She's gone but not forgotten.
