Yeah, modification, finding pieces, or finding a good one in the wrecking yard is all you can do with it being obsolete.

I like the plexiglass idea, with perhaps wide reflective tape, or pinstriping as backing.

I believe the Letters are still avaliable as they also fit the 1980-1984 panel.

I have one!

I know this is kind of an old post, but if anyone is still looking for one of these tailgate inserts I have one that I would be willing to sell. It's in great condition too! Just send me a message if you're interested and I can send you some pictures. Thanks!

Hi everyone. Has anyone modded one of these tailgate panels and put some sort of LED lights in behind the red see thru panel? Maybe wire them to running lights and or tail lights? any insight is appreciated

shade tree repair

my reflector was broken at one end and was missing about six inches. i cut off the end enough to square it, cut it in half and installed them and mesured the gap in the center. i then cut an aluminum plate to fill that space. to secure it i put 3 small marker lights on it and put the screws thru the lights, plate and factory bezel. looks great! in order to secure the reflector panels i used 3/16 carrage bolts on the outsides and two license plate bullet lights at the center. sorry guys if yours is missing this wont help you. if anyone wants to see a picture let me know and i will ask my grand daughter to show me how to post it!

I took mine off and welded up the holes. Mine has a dented trim panel in a few spots but the reflector is perfect. It's going to go bye bye soon. I wonder if I should remove the reflector and sell it? Scratch that idea. I guess I'll put it up on Craigslist for cheap. Might be better than what somebody has.

My '84 tailgate insert is looking pretty bad. Does anyone know what's behind that before I remove it?

It should look like a plain tailgate with out the trim. There will be the embossed F O R D letters and the holes from your trim.
