To shave or not to shave...
 
So my truck is going into the body shop next week to have the doors and mirror fixed. I had the guy fluff the insurance quote a little bit to be able to fix a dent i got randomly in my tailgate as well and while i was there I asked if he would mind if i pulled the ram emblem off the tailgate and he could paint over hte bondo for me since he was going to be painting the tailgate anyway...

So if it were you would you shave the ramshead off of the tailgate or no? All the other badges are off the truck and the front rams head is painted black with a white background

I wouldn't. I personally would get some custom badges made or paint the rear emblem to match your front.

I say shave it. I would love to do mine but price is too high to have it all done.
And of course we wanna see pics if you do it.

shave, but do it right, bondo as a fill will crack.

I'd paint it tk match the front if I could but the rear emblems can't be taken apart

I'm not that good with metal work to actually fill it in with sheet metal :/

I say leave it, or paint it white.

That's a hard one, but bondo won't last that long before it cracks so I say keep it on until you can get it done right. Good job on getting the random dent taken care of though :smiley_thumbs_up:
