Will it fit?

Post by Philip Chidlow »

Has anybody tried to put a replacement tailgate in the boot of a saloon? (With seats down of course.) Can secure the existing hatch if it doesn't quite close...

I think Mothman said you can do it OK. BTW the existing tailgates are fully repairable with epoxy and glass (woven roving is much better than CSM) and will repaint as new.

Thanks :) I have quite a bit of damage to the drivers side of the tailgate and the spoiler's in need of repair and re fixing. It would cost me more in ibre glass, sandpaper, paints etc as well as time than to buy the good condition one being offered to me :)

Make sure you have plenty of blankets bud, etc, in case of damage.

If you put the rear seats down, a tailgate will fit inside a hatch no problem, i've currently got 2 front wings, boot lid, & 3 doors in my TZD.

The tailgate fits in the back of a BX hatch quite easily. Not sure what saloon car you're referring to!
