To iron out the imperfections in the top edge I clamped a piece of 50 x 25mm RHS in tightly to the top lip and welded it in. Another 25 x 25mm RHS was added to straighten the centre section. The wide piece is 5mm thick and will be used to tap into to take the tie down hooks. Originally they were rivetted to a thinner piece but bolting on with countersunk bolts will be easier.
The tailgate will be a bit heavier but in came out straight and flat.
