Reproduction tailgate for 1952 F1

I'm having my Truck painted in February and I want to replace my tailgate. My tailgate has at least 50 dings in it. I have had no luck tracking down A good used one. So I'm wondering if anyone can point me to a company that sells A Good quality replacement tailgate.

Thanks for the help, Matt

49m47 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have no idea if this company is any good or not.

There is a Mercury Truck web site that I've gone to for research Welcome to MercuryPickup. This company advertises there. They advertise used steel and new fiberglass.
Again I have no history with them, I just saw their add.

Since you're in Michigan, go see Northern Classic in Sterling Heights. I was on a business trip last month & stopped by to see their complete bed setups. They're making quality parts & the prices are pretty good.

It looks like they're pretty much at your back door.

50 dings would make it "clean used sheetmetal"

Ditto on Northern Classic, I've never bought from them myself but they have always gotten great reviews on the 'net. Mar-K also makes great stuff.

Dan Thank you very much for the link. That place is only 2 miles down the road from my work. I never knew of it. I'm going to go over there after work tomorrow and talk to them.



Thanks for the other suggestion 49m47.

Lmao, I'm going to hang the old one above the bar in my basement. To it's credit it don't have any rust just alot of dings. Mar-K will be the next place I contact if for some reason I don't go with Northern.

Thank you
