While being pushed by a truck out of traffic "guided" into place by my uncle,the truck dented and creased my tailgate.
Is there a way to pop the dents out by disassembling the tailgate from the inside?:dontknow:
Its a huge soft dent with a crease in the metal.

This pic shows the overall soft dent you cant see in the previous pic. Maybe a plunger can get it out? The crease ain't as bad as the soft dent since the paint and body will be done sometime this year. (if I can stop buying go-fast parts.):secret:

Even if you pushed or pulled most out...it would still have waves and be noticeable. It must be pulled, filled and blocked...primed and painted. That there you showed I would charge about $600

So a plunger should get it out?

It'll get out the larger soft dent but you'll still have the crease and a smaller dented area around the crease. Looks like that gate needs some attention anyway. Paint looks to be peeling from the area over the pocket where the bowtie was. 1/4 looks to be peeling too. Be careful if you do bodywork on the gate. Mosts shops would tape up the edge of the 1/4 while doing plastic work on the gate to prevent additional scratches on the 1/4. Problem could be when removing the tape the red comes with it.
