the tailgate on my 87 ramcharger is cracked on the outside right next to the hinge. it sticks up about 1" on the one side, the other side is just cracked. the door works okay other wise. can i pull it together with a c clamp and pop rivit back together or will the fiberglass just break? any ideas? thanks.

hey
it's a common problem on those gates. ussing expoxy in the crack and then clamping it together would be one solution. if you take the gate off to do it be forwarned that the metal plates that the bolts mount to inside the gate have the tendency to come of the gate and fall into the gate. that would mean cutting a small hole near their position and seinstanling them as you put the gate back on the truck. happened to me. lol
