I thought the tailgate needed some color. Originally planned to do some silver on the tailgate to blend in better, but found out vinyl doesn't stick to the rough texture. I think the all black makes it looks like an ad-on piece rather than factory. I may try some paint at a later date. Anyway, I'm just getting started on the mods and will update periodically as time permits.

I'm confused, is that paint or vynal? Looks good.

oh this is vinyl. I wanted to do the tailgate in silver vinyl and leave the letters black, but since it will only stick to a smooth surface I had to put vinyl on the letters. I want some silver on the tailgate to touch and blend in with the sides. I may try paint at a later date. And thanks, I think it gave it a more finished look too.

I got the vinyl at sign solution in Burleson, Tx. It was the only silver they had and it matched perfectly. It was only a few bucks, but I would think most any sign shop would have something that would work.
