i took off the factory covers on the tail gate and then covered it with aluminum plate....the miracles of a plasma cutter......all the " slag" i scraped off with a razor blade to make edge smooth. the plan is to get the fold down kit for the tailgate.

If u did the fold down I think that's a pretty cool lookin tail gate. Either way, looks good

man who the hell uses millimeters??? lol i think its 16 gauge aluminum plate. there will be no outside shiny aluminum...honestly i cant wait for it to dull down and shit... love the rugged look but i might make another i have enough that i might be able to make 2 more. dunno what id charge but i reckon make an offer. think my next build will be a hd tire carrier so i can make my fold down kit for the tailgate...that way if it falls the $%# off i can only blame me lmao

I had a rare 91 MB 300GE 2 dr cabriolet that had a fold down with a similar plate. It was tough as hell, easy to clean etc. Each GE cab came from the plant in Austria like that, so a good legacy. Go for it, nice work.
