Ironhide tailgate

So here is an emblem that I had made for the tailgate to resemble the actual tailgate from the movie. I’m adding a piece of plexiglass behind it so I can put a blue led light behind it to give it some pop at night and to be a little different. I’ll Shave the tailgate handle and relocate it inside the tailgate and an actuator and two poppers to open the tailgate since it will have a bed cover on as well. All together it’s just under 1/4” thick.

Rambos_ride that looks interesting. I would want to see a video of how to apply it and what the finished product would look like. Is it meant for outdoor use? It sounds intriguing though.

07yellowkodiak I will. I’m really excited for everything that I’m going to be doing over the next year. I will be posting a ton of pictures that’s for sure.

Been around for a few years, but not many know about it.

I’ve never used it but want to try it out soon.

Could be cool effect with what you’re doing.

There’s a few different lines, search for conductive paint

Rambos_Ride. Nope. Not gonna happen. I just watched that video you attached and they said it costs $1200 to paint a half motorcycle helmet. That’s what it’s going to cost in just materials for me to repaint the whole truck. That stuff is super cool but not what I want to spend.

Not to meantion that that is not my clients taste. However I think it would be really cool on the right project.

I think with a little searching youíll find other brands that are way less expensive...like the fist link...their pricing didnít seem bad?

For backlighting what you pictured I doubt it would be anywhere close to that lumlor..that was just the first video I ran across..there are many more.

Rambos_Ride. No you are right about other brands pricing. I may look into it in the future either for myself or another clients project but we want to keep this one a little more low key on some of the added features. But thank you for the idea. I will keep it in my back pocket.
