    Just wondering, any ideas how much it would be to just have a tailgate painted? Its only one color, and needs a pinstripe masked off or redone. I tried, it didnt work, Im trying it over, but, without all the equipment (my freinds bringing some junk over tomorrow) and it should go much better, but, just incase, Id like a possible price.

    I am not proud to admit that I've messed up my tailgate on my daily driver many times and I've paid anywhere between $150-$350 depending upon how bad the damage was.

    Well mine isnt messed up. Well I guess it after I tried painting it. :cry:

    It was just scratched, and the letters were fading, and it had a few chips. There are some dents, but I dont want them fixed. Just paint. But it still sounds like it would be a good $100 I guess.

    only way to find out for sure is to bring it to your local body shop.

    Thanks alot ABES, this is all your fault. I see how nice your truck is and want to make mine look as nice as yours. Now I get these ideas and screw things up before I make it better. :p But its ok. xysport

    my shop charge for S10 tailgate for $175.

    So it should be close to $200.
