Default Re: 1960 - 62 Fenderside Tailgate

I did fix one with the top bent as yours. Cut off sections of the top "tube", used a pipe as a mandrel to beat the pieces back to shape and rewelded them back on. Longer story than that but that is the gist. If you choose to buy a brand new one, your tailgate is worth at least half of new, for sure. That will pay for the shipping.
