    I created AutoCAD dwg and dxf cadfiles for the stepside tailgate letters.

    A sign shop can use the CAD file to create masking templates (for painting the letters) or custom vinyl letters of any size and color.

    If you would like a copy of the files send me a PM with your email address.

    I also have a cadfile for the 1960-1966 Fleetside letters, as shown below.

    Very nice job Lakeroadster :cool:

    When I needed them for the tailgate on my '65 C10 stepside I found some self adhesive ones on eBay for $18.50 (link below) which were posted to me here in the UK. Easy to apply and they are very durable. Picture of my rear end below!! :D

    Nice '65 David!

    Yeah, If you're ok with the use of vinyl in either white, black or chrome it's hard to beat our sponsors offerings. But if you want something different, in color, or if you want to paint the letters, I got ya a good start with the cad files.

    I painted the letters on my stepside using a foam roller... See post #112 here for more info: https://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=13928&page=8

    Sorry Lakeroadster didn't see your previous post to this one :eek: Didn't think to get them from our host, would have saved a few dollars!!

    I see what mean about using your CAD work as a paint template!!
