Adding Some Woody To The Woody Boatermobile

f150 Woody 77

Nothing like a day of sitting around waiting for food. So I added some Woody bling to the trusty 2014 Ford F150. I bought the platinum edition but did not really like the platinum grill and tailgate piece. But it did have nice leather, a wood wheel and dash parts.

Here is the tailgate in original metal


Here is the photoshop comp I did to see how it would look

A month ago we installed a color coded Limited front grill and now walnut grain on the tailgate completes the look. It was surprisingly easy. A nice roll of 3M Wood grain, and some sharp xacto blades and poof, we gots some unique F150..

The wood grain is almost like a veneer!

The trick is cutting around the ford logo and emblems. The walnut color matches the Kodiak brown paint and interior wood dash parts

The grain is embossed into the vinyl

Here is the new front grill, Its a limited front grill which is color matched making this look like the factory did this.. That was the concept.

The color of the truck is Kodiak Brown, NOT black

Now off to the Reedville HQ for some peace and quiet, of course Pepe in the header was first in the truck and would not leave. No one wants to be left behind!

Dont leave me behind! Lets go!

    Use a soapy water in a spray bottle before you apply the vinyl. It allows it to be moved around, Then you take a simple burnisher and just squeeze the water out.. Its very easy

    Looks great. Do you think I can apply it to my Clorox Cruiser? It’s on the hard now so this would be the time.

    I like the new look on the tailgate of your F150. Nicely done.

    I also like the look of this new website. Much easier to use with the iPhone.

    How about the mahogany wood slat extensions above the box sides. That really looked great on your old truck, and would put the finishing touch on this one.

    Now just run dual exhausts thru the bumper with chrome exhaust rings and a stern pole with flag…viola

    Matt that’s one GOOD LOOKING truck! But you need to step it up son! Add some exterior bing as they use to have by installing a hood armament, Like a nice CC bow light and flag. Then if you have the old man tailgate package pull that ladder up and fly the colors!

    Matt Looks good. Did you consider adding real wood slats around the perimeter of tailgate? Just a thought. I’m in the middle of restoring a 1947 Pontiac woodie, target date for completion is next summer. I had to sell 2 of my 5 wood Switzers to finance the project but should be worth it. Will post pics when completed. David Doyle, West Bend, Wi

    Awesome look!! Where could I pick up a roll of that vinyl and what’s the exact item description called as I’ve seen various shades of walnut and/or other similar colors.
