I "lurve" the curve in the tailgate, it takes away the plain flat panel look and I love the hinges as well. I might have to do something similar for my 1939 Morris 14 horsepower Ute when I do the body, although the panels either side of where the tailgate should be appear to be straight, not curved.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Yep, love getting on the swarf - o - mat! Tried using end mills last weekend to open out the holes on sawbench pillow bearings for the swarf - o - mat MkII (my lathe's a little Chinese lathe mill drill) Good fun. MkII is an antique line shaft powered lathe I'm converting to electric power. Really testing my meagre ingenuity.
My wife said I never listen to her..., or something like that....
