A common issue I see with mini trucks, especially acty's, around here in Northern Japan is the hinge pins rusting out on the tailgates (rear and side's). I had one that I was repeatedly tacking back on, but it finally came completely off, somewhere unknown. I've started calling around junk yards and checking auction sites for a used replacement gate, but no luck yet. I'm sure I'll come across a used one, but in the meantime, was wondering if anyone has successfully made their own pin or, even their own tailgate? The latches on mine are in great shape, I think it would be simple enough to make a door and, use the existing hardware.
