    This looks the better of the two tailgates. It has got light surface rust in places, where it's been left bare metalled, and a nice dollop of filler that hasn't been rubbed down. No rot though, and the bottom lip where they normally go is sound. £40 if it's any good to you.

  7. yes, it's the bottom lip seam on mine that's blooming out (leaky seal :( )

    will show my bodywork chap soon, if that's ok? i'm a bit rubbish and end up buying the wrong things - decades of doing that has taught me to ask folk who know better :rolleyes:

    thank you :thumbsup:

    Tailgate seal.
    Bit rust stained in places. Replaced because I thought it was the cause of my leak - it wasn’t! (Window glass wasn’t pushed in enough after seal replacement)

  11. Hi lovely folk,
    Sorry i've not responded for a bit... i am still interested in all your bits (oo-er, misses!), but life and attacking Trevor's underbelly kind of took over :oops:

    @Dubs regarding the tailgate - i've since found out that they can be different sizes (and therefore the seals?), as mine's an awkward crossdresser, I'm going to measure mine this Saturday so i have an idea what the bogging hell i'm looking for. I thought they were all the same size! :confused:

    Does this mean the engine lids came in different sizes too?

    Engine lids have different hinges. Earlies had actual hinges, late bays just have a sort of pokey thing through a brackets thing.. I'm pretty the tailgate I have is a late, but will check later. :thumbsup:

    *but a little more rust now :oops:
