It looks easy. So how did you redo the handle on the opposite side of the tailgate?
I have a 12guage sheet of metal i was just going remove the handle and cut a little so i can weld the metal plate in.. Then sand and paint it

Well looking and reading all the different threads i seen on this. I think i got a idea of what i am going to do...

I am going to get my grinder (cuttin wheel) And cutt the front panel out.
Then cutt a area for the panel on the back side.
Then i am going to take a sheet of metal and weld it where the front panel use to be.
Then i weld the panel onto the rear hooking my handle back up..
Then smooth down the front then paint..

Is that correct?
