Modern Ford F-150 Gets Rusty Wrap, Looks Like Wicked Barn Find

Rust is a serious enemy even when you're behind the wheel of an average car, but when you happen to drive a pickup truck, having your tool affected by corrosion can turn into a nightmare.

Well, it seems certain people who drive blue collar machines enjoy beating rust at its own game by protecting their rides with films that imitate the deteriorated metal.

This is exactly the kind of treatment the Ford F-150 in these pictures received, with the machine now being ready for work in its new eye-cathing form. The previous-generation model, which wasn't exactly shy about its road presence in factory form, has now turned into a guaranteed attention magnet.

The design of the wrap seen here comes from Californian artist Skepple, whom we must thank for the images. As for the second skin job itself, this was handled by Swedish specialist WrapZone.

If these names sound familair, it might be because we've shown you other fruits of their collaboration in the past. And one of the most stiking efforts of this kind was the Porsche 911 GT3 RS wearing a worn-out Martini Livery, a theme that was recently borrowed by a Cayman GT4.

We might be dealing with a rust-trolling trend involving pickup trucks

Returning to the utilitarian job we have here, we might be dealing with a trend. And we're not just talking about drivers of machines that are no longer new and can be helped to look fresh with such wraps.

Heck, last time we gave you an example of such a "rusty" pickup truck, it involved a new Chevrolet Silverado, whose owner ensured the workhorse looks like the kind of animal who had been in the hauling business for years - we'll return to give you more such example as soon as we get out keyboard on them.
