if you still have the tailgate, that would probably be the better way to go since it will resist flexing more than the tailgate skin itself.... unless you are putting the 'cap' over the tailgate...
Yea it is just the cap, kinda confused where you saying I should do all the work on the tailgate cap on the truck so it doesnt flex so much? I have it off right now, im going ot be replace the thick one that came with the truck with this one.IM LOWR said:if you still have the tailgate, that would probably be the better way to go since it will resist flexing more than the tailgate skin itself.... unless you are putting the 'cap' over the tailgate...
Yup that was what I was talking about. So then the question goes if I get bulldog promotor will it be compatable with the GM paint (its actually from GM). And then for prep what are the actual steps to smooth down the bumps (grits needed) and sanding between coats of what and at what grit. Thanks..bcubed said:I think he's just talking about a tailgate cap protector, not welding his tailgate in and using a skin.
As for the cap, I've never used it but alot of people swear by the bulldog adhesion promotor, makes paint stick to plastic easier. I think I've seen it at Wal-Mart, probably have it at AutoZone, etc ..... prep is the key, and using products that are compatible (don't use a primer from one brand and a paint from another, one may cause the other to bubble up). Hope this helps.
The one I bought I already now have sanded down, just need to put the adhesion promotor, primer, paint, clear on... :head:Doughboy said:I have a smooth cap for sale if you want it. I never used it cuz I have a Gaylord cover. I will sell it to you for real cheap. All you gotta do is paint it and install.
