Thanks. I will snoop around a few junkyards. Anybody have any idea how cheap I may get one there? I would say one that is rust free, dont mind a few dings or scratches but no rust. I would still need to get it painted to match though if I wanted to go that far.
I have seen new ones online for about $200 bucks (no hardware included on that). Would still need to get that painted too but I would have a pristine looking gate. My real question would be how would it match up strength wise with the original?
I am going to tear into mine soon to see what is up with the latching mechanism. Hopefully I wont find anything busted and only requiring a little lubing.
