Caddy Storage offers ute canopies which are colour coded to the paint manufacturers’ specifications. An identification colour code is developed by the paint manufacturer to try to accommodate any variations on vehicles painted worldwide as one generic colour.
The process of colour coding is not the same as colour matching. We do not offer colour matching or claim an exact colour match between the canopy and the vehicle. Colour matching is undertaken by vehicle repairers who can accurately match the colour of your vehicle irrespective of factory paint variations, or how old or weather-affected the vehicle is by varying the colour of the paint prior to application. If you seek an exact colour match to your vehicle, you should consult a panel beater for more information.
Ute canopies are not waterproof. They are weatherproof. If high pressure hoses or car washes are used on the canopy or tub, there may be leaks (in fact, in case you didn’t know, ute tubs generally aren’t waterproof either).
Canopies weigh approximately 100kgs each. This can vary depending on the style of canopy (ie. lifestyle/work style, window configuration).
Some ute canopies may have remote locking installed. The remote locking system supplied in these select ute canopies are an independent unit with their own controlling key and are not integrated into the vehicle’s OEM central locking system.
