Ok i know that sprint went out of business, but i have been searching through the forum and have seen where people said another company bought them up. Are they producing the covers yet? I talked to sport truck solutions and he didnt have anyand didnt seemlike they were available, i was finally able to locate one but its painted yellow, i could get this one and then have it repainted But then i saw on the forum where others have said you have to tear it apart and separate the frame from it to paint it?

There's no frame to separate. It's one solid piece of fiberglass. Just mask off the outer seal or remove if it's possible. I got the black gelcoat when I got mine and it started to fade. I traded the truck before repainting it so I dont' know if the seal comes off easily or not. Otherwise just scuff it with like 600 grit wet and prime and paint it. I think someone was confusing the Sprint with the Checkmate which has an aluminum frame around it but that can still be painted as one piece.

ok i can see where they thought hat about the checkmate..how much did you spend on yours? i was able to find one and they quoted me $720, i hate that im gonna have to pay for the yellow painted option cuz im gonna turn around and sand it all off..but if i realy want it guess i have to go that route.

I think with freight mine was close to $700 back in 2000 when they were still in business.
