    Does anyone make a replacement for the panel that goes on the inside of the tailgate (you know, the removable one to get to the inner workings)? I can't seem to find one.

    LMC should sell them (http://www.lmctruck.com, request a catalog, very handy) ... but it sure seems like you oughta be able to get one from a junkyard.

    In Ohio they rust out (along with the bottom of the gate) real bad. This is the 4th K5 I've owned and they were all trashed.

    Over the years I have made them from plywood or alumunim.If you want to find a used one at a salvage yard it wont be inventoried so ask for tailgates. Ask about a damaged one, that will have no value to them. Then ask for the specific piece and they will sell it.( If u can find a salesman that will get off his a$$ and check for you) . Good luck
