Lets see some Ford tailgate logos painted or striped
Why limit it to Ford, you got a good idea here, open it up to all makes.
Sorry your right all logos painted or striped
Cmon guys let me see some pics of your tailgate logos
O.K., here's one of my old 1951 Ford pick-up's tail gate.
Metal master Cris Bogess hand hammered the V8 logo in my tailgate when he built the pickup bed.
Bruno Perry striped it.
Tailgate on my '36 Ford. I want to make a new louvered one some day.
I’m looking for a Mercury tailgate.

If anyone sees this Ford truck on the road in So Cal, check it out. The license plate might surprise all of us that think it is just a cool looking blue Ford truck rolling around the area. The detailing on the tailgate lettering, in a contrasting darker blue, makes the logo standout from a distance.
I took this photo a year ago and it is a daily driver, as it has been seen on the road, various parking lots and in different places in this old coastal city area.
Something about a Chrysler “HMI” product involved or something like that…
This is a great idea. I think I will look for a contrasting color to my Very Dark maroon Thanks
I'm looking for a 51-52 Mercury Tailgate heard this is the place to look...
Mine, work in process. It is wet sanded now but will be the last piece I polish. Wimbledon White
On a Harley trailer I built to match my bike..
Not painted perse, but a little something on my homemade tailgate I cooked up to mess with people.
Green F1 is lettered inside and out, also has my father's dealership tag painted on.
The M3 tailgate had the whisky decal on it but was misplaced during the build so I had it painted on a couple weeks ago.
The other two are just ones I liked from local trucks.
This old Chevy truck has been in So Cal for a long time. The owner had a small shop in the Southern part of this coastal city and then it closed. Sometime later, we saw it again on one of our errand days out. A great new paint scheme, nice lettering, and bed tarp still did not draw away from the styling and overall look.
It is a daily driver, local shop delivery truck and we were surprised to see it one other day cruising around the busy DMV building area. Perhaps, it was delivering a bouquet of flowers to an unsuspecting, new driver standing in line, outside of the busy office. YRMV
Tailgate on my ‘58…
