Default Tailgate Cancer

The truck I'm looking at has a small rust spot on the lower part of the tailgate, typical stepside tailgate. Have any of you guys repaired that if you got it or should i just buy a newer tailgate without the rust?

Its not that bad, heres a pic.


I know theres a dent on it but I can pull that out

I was going to attempt it but you are really better off getting a good used one. I got mine for 75.00

If you need a standard tailgate I can get ya one pretty cheap and in real good shape if you are willing to pay shipping and the cost of the gate

The steppy gates are kinda hard to come by in good shape, it took me months to find a good one. Let me know which you would want and I'll start searching parking lots lol
