It's fitted... all but for the rubber strip along the bottom as I've got to
get an appropriate drill bit tomorrow. Went on very well. Minimal assembly.
I had one "oh **uk!" moment when the plate which the hinge bolts fasten too
slid down the inside of the frame to the bottom.... Fortunately it was still
off at that point. I managed to slide it back and align it then bunged one
bolt in each side pronto.
I had to adjust the pins the latches fasten too on the goal, post frame. I
also discovered that the one catch I hadn't replaced was so corroded and
gundged up that it was causing the linkages to stay in the position as
though the button was pressed hence the bouncing tailgate syndrome when
closing. Both latches and lock assemblies have been well lumbricated and it
opens and shuts like new.
I'd definately had to have replaced the tailgate anyway as once I struck the
impact drive to release the screws of the catches around a third of the
tailgate lower edge deposited it's self on the drive.
As always I've taken a few piccys, though it really was simple. I'll upload
them when rain calls off play.
