lmao is that bamboo? and why not keep it and swap internal parts with another tailgate?
Well, it's not scrapped yet, but its worthless. I'm gonna keep the aluminum panel but the rest is junk. The whole bottom of the thing is rotted out, one latch doesn't latch, and it has 4 rust holes at the moment, probably 10 if I were to touch anywhere along the bottom lol
Yes, bamboo! Old Hamii specifically. "Old Timber Bamboo" That stuff is strong! I work on a bamboo nursery so I get connections

They're just what I have there for now. I like having them though because a) the holes in them are nice organizers and b) Tailgaters stay off of me.
And if you'd seen how much crap I pulled out of my bed, it wouldn't be far off to say that 4 cinder blocks is equal in weight to the leaves, dirt, GM header, bamboo, and water bottles
