Thoughts on doing an old style "TOYOTA" on tailgate?

    I've been considering de-badging my tailgate and adding a custom Toyota logo across my tailgate.

    I've did some searching and found a few members who have similar logos on the back

    Mine would be a bit different however, I would have mine sprayed as line-x so it would have a lifted, textured look and feel for the letters.

    My truck is white and I would get the letters sprayed with the Black Line-X Xtra.

    Thoughts? Has anyone seen pictures of similar tailgates?

    I like the look, but why the line-x? it seems like that would be a pain to clean

    I think the rough texture would look pretty cool. I'm good friends with the local Line-X owner and he has done some great custom lettering.

    yeh i guess as long as it isn't too thick it would be pretty cool. I personally would have some vinyl lettering made or maybe airbrushing done
