    Got a question about undercoating a new tailgate. Whats the best undercoat? and should I undercoat the inside of the tailgate itself as well as anywhere water can get in? Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    Don't know about the undercoating, but after I had my tailgate and doors painted I sprayed some ruberized coating around the seams on the inside as well as the inside bottom of the gate/doors where water might sit (making sure the drainage holes were still open). I'm hoping this will prevent any rust from forming from the inside out, but only time will tell ....
