inside of tailgate looks like *&#@

so i got the inside of the bed Line-X'd the other day. now that part is nice and shiney and the inside tailgate protector and handle for the step look like crap. the handle i'm planning to take off and repaint or maybe even powdercoat. but what can i do with the black plastic piece that covers the inside of the tailgate to make it look "new" again?

HA HA......i'm WAY to cheap for that

ford tends to be a bit too proud of their stuff to make that an option. i guess i shouldn't say that just yet since i haven't checked on the pricing, but i'm assuming those pieces are not cheap. BUT, i'll make the call and see what they cost....

bed rail caps.... $134 each
tailgate caps (pieces on either side of the step).... $55 each
tailgate cover (piece on inside of tailgate)....$261

like i suspected, i'm WAY to cheap for that option

If you don't care about the handle you can buy the access cover for ~$60. I did this and had it sprayed to match the bed liner and it looks great. You still have the step but no longer have the handle or huge plastic piece on the tail gate.

Here, in town, they don't even Line-X the tailgate or on the bed rails under the bed caps because of all the holes that are hidden underneath. They basically spray the whole bed and then the underside of the bedrails but not the top side where the bed caps sit. Not sure what the point of my post is but for the $650 I was quoted to spray my bed, I was kind of disappointed. Guess this is common practice for spray in bed liners.

If you buy the tailgate access cover get the screws for it also. They are different from the screws that hold the plastic piece on.

When my bed was Line-X'd the plastic piece on the tailgate was removed and the entire tailgate surface was sprayed.

I herculined the bed of my truck for about 60 bucks...

I have the regular tailgate but I did not coat it because I only bought a gallon and that was used up in the bed. With my truck camper I don't use the tailgate all spring/summer/fall...I may coat it this winter.
