Vintage Truck Doors Logo



Have you ever been to Roosterpoot, Tennessee?  No?  Me neither.  Probably because it doesn't exist except to my brother maybe.

Well kidding aside, it isn't a real place but my brother is and he owns a real 1950s model Ford truck.  He owns a few vintage trucks and he has one in particular that he wanted me to paint a logo on the doors.  No stress there!!  It's just the doors of your vintage truck!

It seems the "thing" to do in the old hot rod truck world right now is to create a vintage looking logo on the doors...even distressing and aging the logo.  Well, that's right up my alley so I agreed to do it.

I won't go into lengthy details on how I did it because, really, who's ever gonna need this info.  BUT, I thought you'd enjoy seeing a snapshot of the process and the finished doors.  I think the design process took the longest.  I used Photoshop and arranged the lettering and rooster design.  After I printed it, I enlarged it so that I could make a stencil for the doors.  Here's the first layer (candy apple red) on the door.


Ok, that was the hardest part!  Putting that first layer of paint on the door.  It was somewhat forgiving in that the doors were painted in a flat black so any goof ups could be sanded and repainted with flat black.  Thankfully, I didn't have to do that.


Next step was to begin adding the white detail to the lettering and image.  So far, so good.



More detailing by adding the yellow and black paint.  Looking pretty good!


Got everything painted!  The next step my husband almost couldn't stand to watch.  I took sandpaper to the whole thing and began distressing it...heavily.



I r-e-a-l-l-y liked the finished distressed look.  I think it gave the rooster even more attitude ;)

It took me a few weeks from start to finish.  I called my brother to let him know they were finished but that I wouldn't send him a photo as I wanted him to be surprised when he saw them for the first time.  Well, that didn't last long.  He lives about 3 hours away so the soonest he could come was about a week out.  I broke down and posted a photo on Facebook for him to see.  He loved them.  

And, after he got them back home, I asked for a photo with them on the truck!  (I knew it would be great!) 

Here's what I got:


Oh well, I was very thankful for the photo I did get.  I'll try to grab another one when I'm home at Christmas.  If I lived closer to him, you better believe I'd be using his trucks for some killer photo shoots!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
