    I need a set of tailgate guts for a first gen. I bought JungleBoy's tailgate shell from him, and we couldn't get the guts out while I was in Houston, so he sent me home with them. I still haven't been able to get out one of the screws. I've tried everything I can think of short of drilling it out which I would ratrher not do since I have never had much success when drilling out screws. I have soaked it in 3 in 1 oil, put heat on it, tapped the screw with a hammer.....Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If it's that big a problem, just keep the guts in the yellow gate and since you're buying anyway, just have the ones you buy sent to me. Save a little labor and worry...

    I've got a whole tailgate with a small amount of cancer on the bottom. Big Chevrolet letters for my 72 for sale. $75 for the whole tailgate:

    Thanks Batmanjr, but I need one in a little bit better shape. The guts aren't for me, they are for JungleBoy. I bought a tailgate from him, and when we couldn't get the guts out at his house, he let me take the tailgate home anyway. I was supposed to tkae them out and ship them to him, but I haven't been able to get out one of the screws. I've had bad luck with easy outs, so I am looking to buy a set to send him.
