Matching the red exactly might be a challenge. I vote for black

Yeah just do red. If you can't match it a body shop can.

Hard to beat the look of a factory matched hard cover or at least to me it is...

Go Red.
Black makes it look like you picked the cover up somewhere less than desirable and your too cheap to paint it.

Yeah I'm going red. I'm painting it in a few weeks. So for the time being it will be pewter.

If you did blk on the lower body line down MAYBE a blk bed cover would look ok.

Red is the way to go otherwise.
