Wanted: Replacement tailgate black/silver

Post by don » Wed Apr 07, 2021 1:28 pm

Hi all,
I’m looking for a replacement black/silver tailgate for my 1995 Ford Freda as we bought it with a big dent in the back as the previous owner reversed into a cow (statue, not real!)
Not sure if these are standard colours but thought I’d try my luck - image attached.
Based near Sherborne in Dorset if it could be delivered for a cost?
Many thanks!
Don

Oh well, thanks for the heads-up, guess it doesn’t matter what colour I get then 😄

If you can get black/silver it will be easier, though. :wink:

I heard that it may be possible to use a hairdryer to persuade the dent to undent? Must be on here somewhere......

I bet that rear step and towbar could persuade a concrete cow to shift !.
