    Was sittin in the back of my Blazer last night daydreaming & sizing up how to lower the tailgate glass now that the cable is busted off. When what to dimayed eyes should appear but a bloody big rust patch in the floor across the front of the tailgate! How many times did I look at Neil Pickett's article in the tech section and think how lucky I was that mine wasn't rusted out there!! DAMN! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Anyhow, I guess I'll have to re-do the floor so what gauge steel would you suggest? On the bright side, I guess it'll be easier to build that access door to the fuel pump now

    Thanks
