Default Body panel and tailgate issues

I just bought a 95 1500 regular cab 4X4. It's got a few issues but I wanted something I could wrench so it's alright. I just have two issues I can't figure out. First, the thing is covered in dents, some of which i'm sure I can easily remove myself, but a few need a good beating. How can I remove the front quarter panels to get at the dents?

Second, one of the few things that isn't dented is the tailgate, miracle of miracles, but it doesn't go down. I can pull the handle as hard as can be but the latches at either end don't release, in fact they barely move at all. The gate has no lock so what's my best option?

Thanks
Dan

Seems like there is a problem with the linkage in the tailgate. Pull the tailgate handle trim out and take a peak inside.
