Tailgate shown is from my original AC cart I've owned for years. Recently I came by another yellow cart w/o a tailgate and, after trying to find one for awhile I started brainstorming.  Another project...

Tapped into a metal fabricator resource and this is what I received:

May be a bit heavier than the original but it will work. Knowing that making one is tougher than ones that follow I doubled down. Next step: clean up and prime. Hang on

There is a fella over on the Allis forum that made up a batch of repops, and did a fantastic job.  I always thought it would be gratifying to make one.
