The tailgate on my Alfetta GTV (1979) is seriously rotten and any secondhand items I've been offered are not great, and quite expensive. I came across a guy doing glassfibre panels, trading as Alfapanels. I'm quite interested, a glassfibre tailgate will be lighter than steel and won't rust. Of course I realise this makes the car not 'original'.
Anyone know the quality of these glassfibre panels?

the quality is very good, I have several panels of them on my racecar.
Most weight of the tailgate is in the glass btw....
On a racecar or trackdaycar I have no problems with polyester panles, on a very nice otherwise Original car I do...But it is your car.
I would search for a good steel panel, they are out there somewhere.
