Didn't want just a plain tailgate so I made some scupturing from sheet plastic and putty. PE Ford emblem added.

F100 standard grille from the MPC flipnose kit used with the promo headlights drilled out. '69 Camaro reflectors and lenses were added

Wow! I'm not usually a big green fan, but that is the right color for that truck. Love the chop and stance...

This truck looks fantastic! There's a ton of work involved to make it look "just right", and you nailed it. Definitely a new favorite of mine.
