FA 31mm lens cap?

I just bought a FA 31 and took it out for the first time. I really don't like the lens cap. It's hard to take off and put on. I'd like to try the setup discussed in this old thread, but has anyone tried it on a K-1 FF? Does anyone have another suggestion?

Alternatively: just try using it for a few weeks, you may become accustomed to it. The item photographed above seems to have scratches on the hood, that's going to affect the resale value (and for me the aesthetic of the lens, it's a beautiful object).

Scratches on the hood are badges of honor, as long as the glass is clear and clean. Thanks for the tip, I was worried about it vigenetting on the K-1 (or worse than it already does wide open).

I like my cap, and would like to get another for a spare, but can't find a source.

I bought an Amazon basics 58mm filter for $5.00 and removed the glass. I added a genuine 58mm Pentax snap cap and it works fine.
