My Tail gate project

So as some of you know I aquired a 97 black tailgate from a friend. Well it was dinged and scratched up here is a before pic.




After some pondering I decided I need to learn bodywork so here is my stab at it.

Here it is blocked using 40 grit and 3m bondo

So then I sanded the laquer primer with 220 grit and decided to go with a urathane primer I sprayed 4 coats then wet sanded with 400 grit then sprayed two more coats wet sanded again and with the tailgate wet this is my result








So how did I do.

Looks good, are you going to put the aluminum trim on it? Or are you going to leave it white? Either way will look good
