Yup what he said! Very easy to do and I applied wet as well and no bubbles. Very high quality vinyl. I also did the hood too! Tailgate Applique-photo503.jpg

Very nice... white and black for me
Ruby red looks great, was a toss up between white and ruby for me.

Did you tape off the angles before you sprayed it?

That's vinyl. Like a great big bumper sticker.

I’m curious how long the decals will last in the Florida sun. Does anyone know who makes the vinyl that American muscle is selling and the grade?

[QUOTE=2016BoostedGreyGoose;4975722]This is the one that I am working on.... Its presently off at the paint shop being pait along with my Limited grille. Will post pics when I get them back. Check ebay and local junk yards...if you dot mind modifying one yourself, its can actually be really exciting to see your handy work come alive. I lightly sanded mine and used body filler to fill in JUST the writing "Platinum" so that when painted it would no longer be visible, as I dont have a Platinum. lol


I sent you a PM, but not sure you got it, what grit did you use to sand. My painter said he could not get it scuffed up at all with a scotch bright. I tried some 220 grit and it did a little, but want to make sure I do not scar it too much....

Default AirDesign Tailgate panel

I never checked for price as I already had mine. The one they sell comes in a flat black and has been featured at SEMA on the Silver 2015 F150 below....... Company is called Air Design.



Yes, I put the Air Design Tailgate panel on my '17 Lariat. Modded it a little bit to give it a "factory" look. I've had lots of compliments on it.
