How much for a new tailgate from Reno, and what do you get?


Also, what is the difference between phase 1 and 2. I know their is no hole for the washer and the badges are different. Anything else?

The badges on the phase 2 have locating holes in the tailgate. Also the washer jet as you said. Other than that no differences.

Think its just the bare metalwork you get.

I have available to me:

Original taligate of 0200 (damaged reversing into a pillar)

449 phase 1 tailgate with loads of minor marks and scuffs

449 phase 2 tailgate (mint)

Car is going into body shop on 7th march.

Do i repair and respray original (maybe costly with large dent). Respray and respray 449 with minor scuffs and dents? Or get a hole put in the phase 2 for the washer and remove the badge holes?

Be cheaper to get a new tailgate.

449 phase 1 tailgate with loads of minor marks and scuffs
Prob best compromise.

449 phase 2 tailgate (mint)
Cutting hole and filling holes would again as original tailgate be labour intensive.

This would all depend on how much a new one would cost, against prep needed ready to spray above tailgates.

Id get the good ph 1 tailgate cleaned up and resprayed myself.
Keep 0200 as a project if you find a decent repair shop.
