Bloody reversed into a wheelie bin earlier that was up against a wall  Crying or Very sad


On the lucky side it hasn't damaged the glass.

Ouch! It's even worse if it was your own bin and wall. I backed my Extol into the bottom of a staircase on my property and got a small ding on the tailgate. Luckily it didn't break the paint, and was still there when I sold it.

I doubt that crease in the line just under the window will pop out, Rich - but your method could well make it almost un-noticeable

I agree, those two fold points have deformed, so it'd take some proper skilled panel beating to fix it.

I do have a spare tailgate, and woody is sending me a nice SE spoiler too...

So I'm going to fix all the rust on the spare tail gate properly, filler out any light marks.

Then bond on the SE spoiler and paint it all in one hit.

I was thinking about doing my wing mirrors and door handles while I'm at it.

And the de-badge grill I made but didn't paint.


Every time I walk behind the van I feel so much regret Crying or Very sad Mad

After thinking about what Rich said about kicking it out.....

I have just finished off doing a rubbish repair to my wheelie binned tailgate.

First I panel beat it back to some sort of rough shape badly.

Then I pre sanded it back badly.

Then I fillered it badly.

Then I sanded it back okay.

Filled in again any low spots.

Wet blocked it off with some 600 wet n dry.

And now I've just brush painted it with some colour - BADLY!

All told, a totally shit repair!

Well perhaps this will cheer you up HJ. I have this evening had a third go at getting the spoiler off and after breaking 4 Stanley knife blades and stabbing myself twice I have got it off.
I have also got the beautiful heart shaped pink exhaust off too.

I think you sent your email address to me but can't find it. If you resend it by PM I will email you the pictures of it--them.
I have a perfect bare tailgate if you are stuck too, for one.

Hectic tomorrow all day but give me a ring in the evening to talk about getting the bits you, Woody.

So here's my oh so crappy bodywork bodge...

I  went from this:-

Pretty horrid I know, but once it gets a coating of dirt at least no one will notice. Laughing
