Tailgate band removal
« on: June 16, 2010, 09:52:07 PM »
I have a 78 High Sierra out back with a good tailgate band on it. Only has one little ding. How can I take it off the truck without ruining it? I am scared to start prying on it. does it snap on or bolt on or what?

It's screwed on. There should be 3 screws on the inside of the gate
