    smoothing tailgate

    interested in eventually doing this but not sure what the best way would be to get it done. would it just be a case of smoothing it out with body filler or is it much more complicated than that? help please

    a mate of mine cut the shape of the number plate area out of a scrap bonnet and welded it to the number plate area and then smoothed in around it was a good job too.

    id advise to weld a panel in rather than use filler or the fibre glass ones available as filler and fibre glass may/will crack, so a metal sheet is best, im going to be doing this to my van. its not a complicated job for some one in the know.
