2022 Ford F-150 Platinum Powerboost
Just finished up doing the tailgate appliqué in Satin Black with platinum and f150 logos color matched to star white. To get the platinum letters matched, I purchased an abs raised letter kit from Etsy (link below)
https://www.etsy.com/listing/1007605766/

Emblem Disassemly -
Great Video on tailgate appliqué removal

Also did the fender emblems and color matched the door handles.

Word of caution when re-installing the door handles, do not force it back in! Look into the hole where the left side of the handles insert into the door and make sure the teeth are backed out enough by turning the bolt in the side of the door and then reinsert. I forced it while installing my first handle back in and pushed the mechanism out of alignment and had to take the door apart including the inside panel. 🤦🏻‍♂️It is very easy to reinstall if you just take your time and know what you’re doing. Thanks Mr.Boom for the video on how to remove but wish there was a good video explaining the reinstall process


Used Touch up direct aerosol color match kit for the star white metallic and Duplicolor Color Max satin black with 1K Matte Clear. Next project is the mirror covers color matched and then on to the front grille assembly

@ChuckingLead Proper job, looks 👌!

I'm in process now, just waiting on parts - you painted existing chrome handles or painted replacement parts? I bought the Ford Performance black emblems not thinking about the smaller emblem on the tailgate appliqué... are you able to disassemble the small Ford emblem similar to the larger one in front? Or did you mask and paint? Nice work!

I painted the original Chrome Door Covers. For the tailgate logo, I disassembled it to paint. It does come apart just like the front emblem

To add on, where those BAP tail lights (black accents) before you tinted them or normal ones (chrome accents)?
I just used a standard taillight film and cut to the size. These were not BAP lights, so they have the chrome accents

They look really good and I swear looking at them they are bap ones. It hides the chrome well.

I just got some bap ones but I may try this on my originals and see if i like it just as well and then sell the bap ones.

I like that this also tones down the rectangles for the lights.

Love what you did, nice work. I am glad to see how fairly easy it is to pull off the door handles. I will be wrapping my truck.

2021 Ford F-150 XLT Powerboost
That satin sheen looks so good! Especially next to that signed photo of MY president. (y)🇺🇸

Seriously, this post is an inspiration. I've been debating on how to get my side badges and grille from black plastic to gloss black (buy oem, wrap or paint) but I might have to tackle it on my own after seeing this. Looking at that tailgate makes me which my XLT was a Platinum!

I bought the f150 that they had on the lot for what I could afford. Always wanted a blackout look. the one in my price range was a F150 XLT/302A package & chrome. My stepson is a professional paint/ body man. Need to start him on the blackout. GREAT JOB.

This looks pretty slick. Is it bad that I thought this thread was more forced deletes for the lingering 22’s?
