Here's a few parts and one of my NOS 85-up tailgates.
Kinda hard to see but there is two coats of plastic-dip on the latch ends of the tailgate rods...
Great write up. As far as how eak the metal mechanisms are...at least they are not like late model trucks with plastic pieces and locking tabs. Nothing worse than pulling up on the door or tailgate handle to have them snap in half.
That's true-these are pretty stout but simple still. I'm prepping my 86 K10 for paint and I elected to restore all the gate hardware. The only parts I don't have NOS were the rods themselves-but now they are like new. The handle was my last one however-and they are big $$ from GM!
