Every day trunk lids are bashed by inattentive drivers. That sudden jolt you feel while sitting at the traffic light can turn out to be a nice dent courtesy of the cell phone distracted driver behind you. Sometimes the damage can even be self-inflicted when distances are misjudged when backing up. And the elements, with a little road salt thrown in, traditional enemies of all steel panels, do their best to afflict rust and corrosion.

Perhaps no body panel on any vehicle is abused as much as a pickup truck tailgate, especially on a working truck. The typical tailgate is slammed, stood on, used as a workbench, and dinged from errant tools and building supplies. Many tailgates also have drainage issues and rust out at the bottom. After many years of hard use, some tailgates are so banged up, dented and warped that they don’t even close and latch properly.

Repairing these panels or going with used or cheap replacements isn’t the answer. The flat expanses of the average deck lid or tailgate will make any poor body work show through the paint, so repairing such damage is not the best choice. “Good” used panels will often prove to have rust or damage that was poorly repaired, once the old paint is stripped away. And a cheap replacement can have a wavy surface with bends and creases that aren’t clean and sharp. It may not fit properly in the opening, which can require extensive body work or return of the panel.
