How to fix a broken tailgate

How to fix a broken truck tailgate

Our mechanic was able to track down a used tailgate at a local junk yard for only 100 bucks. 25 for delivery and another 25 for hammer adjustments and lubrication.

Anna thinks it looks like just another tailgate, but for me it seems like an improvement. I know the color doesn't match, but that shade of red has some sort of emotional charge I can't seem to put my finger on. Maybe it's connected with that scene in the original Matrix movie where a woman walks by in a red dress during Neo's first self aware simulation?

There's hardly a scratch on it, which implies it grew up with a silver spoon in its mouth and lived a life of privilege not unlike our cat Huckleberry.

I think the red jazzes it up! Fancy! Excellent find.
