Default Canopy door tailgate scratch ?

Hey for the guys that have canopies were your canopy door meets your tailgate when closed and leaves a scratch the width of your truck because of the rubbing, how do you fix this and is there any tricks to prevent it further? I bought A new rubber seal to see if it would help but nothing. Thanks for the help

I would buy theose clear chip guard strips at an auto store. They are made for rocker panels, but you can cut to fit it to the tailgate to prevent the rubbing

Yeah that sucks. I had a chevy truck years ago that did that. I hated looking at that!!! If you need it repainted, I'll show you how to wet sand it and get it repainted for you for about 150

no problem man. if its down to the bare metal put some rustoleum on to keep the rust away. You may be able to color match the rustoleum so it doesnt look bad
