As for the tailgate, you need to deal with the rust. I spray the inside of the rockers, tailgate and doors of my trucks with Penetrol. It's a oil paint additive that is oil based. You can get in the paint section of the big box stores. It flows well, creeps into the rust and dries hard. Seems to prevent rust from progressing any further. Friend that has done a lot of auto restoration recommended it to me some years back. I just put it in a cheap pump up sprayer, stick that in the drain holes and let it fly. Be sure and park the truck out on the yard until the penetrol is done draining out of the holes or put something down to catch the drips.
