Well my boats trailer popped off going up my driveway, broke the safety clip or whatever its called and flipped up putting a nice new big hole in my tailgate and taking off gobs of paint. My insurance deductable is 1000 so that is out of the question and I dont have funds for a body shop. Have access to a paint booth and can put the new skin on myself as long as it is not too excessive. Thanks guys!

Have access to a paint booth, then borrow the painter too. Sorry to hear about the mishap.

Just make sure it's not a stolen tailgate... I know I'd be awfully pissed if someone stole my tailgate and I saw it up for $300.

Then again, they'd get a tailgate with 2 coats of Rhino and the typical tailgate breakage.
