I would like to apologize to all who have tried to order Tailgate Letters over the last 6 months. I changed service providers and my e-mail address. My web-host had a problem, and reloaded my website from an older cached copy- with the outdated email address. I have tried to contact all that were affected. The address below is now correct.

Installed at the Southeast Zone meet in Spartanburg, SC.
The process proved very easy, and took about an hour- I was being VERY careful.

Studebaker Truck Tailgate Letters

Long we have awaited a suitable choice for finishing the raised  Tailgate Lettering on our Studebaker Trucks. The original tailgates were painted using a stamped metal template. This would be the preferred method for a "SHOW" restoration, but creating or purchasing a template for everyone to use "one time" would be very costly. Until now, most of us have had to make due with trying to tape them off ourselves, or hiring a sign painter to add them to our tailgates.   While these methods produce suitable results, they are usually time consuming and expensive. As an alternative...We have taken the time to develop affordable reproduction letters in * weatherproof * self-adhesive vinyl. Just peel off the backing and stick them over the original tailgate letters. Detailed INSTRUCTIONS will be included to help you get the best results.
