Re: Tailgates from hell

Make sure the weatherbelts are good, and (as stated) UNDERCOAT the inside. I don't think you need to undercoat the front of the lip since there's paint there, but definitely on the inside where dirt collects, which holds water against the metal, which causes rust. The weatherbelts will keep the dirt and water out.
