    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.

    Happy Trails.... ;)

    Thank you john !

    I have no idea how to use these but if they'll work for my '69 Stepper's tailgate I'll buy a set and give to my bodyman .

    I hate decals .

    O.K., not really hate but paint is always better IMO .

    They'll work on your '69 stepside Nate.

    Just send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you the file... no charge.

    Then you need to contact a local sign shop, send them the file and they can make a masking template.

    I painted the letters on my '65 with a foam roller and they came out nice. Not show quality, patina quality :p
