10. A little more welding, a bit of grinding, and a coat of primer and the top cap is finished, sort of. Though it looks OK and could be “fixed in post” with a bit of body filler, I was concerned about where the filler would be concentrated, in particular on the corner that will be facing up when the tailgate is down. Anything set on the tailgate when it’s down will likely contact that very spot, eventually knocking a big chunk of filler out in the process. I can’t be having that so I opted to come back to the repair with a different solution.
