Day off tomorrow I’ll grab the door panels I need to replace and grab the cooling hoses from the wreckers.

Progress has been extremely slow with this return to work and this is a 4th vehicle so the priority is low.
I did manage to remove most of the dent in the tailgate. F63801BC-9882-49DD-8EC1-94A85E711E82.jpeg F63801BC-9882-49DD-8EC1-94A85E711E82.jpeg E3543942-0E7B-48B2-89C9-AAFC3F78D790.jpeg

I don’t have the power lift gate. So this was a breeze. Remove the inner grab handle cap with a pick and then 2 7mm bolts.
the rest are clips and took 5 mins to remove 9416B7B3-AADA-46B4-AD8E-643354951BB4.jpeg

pop out 2 pins from around the latch

Turn the heat gun to high moving over the area for about 5 minutes

With mechanic glove on I pressed my fist into the dent and pop it almost came right out 97% repaired. I don’t own a hammer and dowel and it looks good enough to me. Not perfect but much better than how I got it

I was up in the air on selling it or keeping it. The more wrenching the more I’m feeling a connection and I’m wanting to license it and possible make it a daily driver. Currently it’s still off the road until I can fix the idle and suspension(which I’m dreading but may tackle tomorrow) with my day off.
I’m liking the truck and I know why you all bought one. It’s gonna be hard to give it up. We’ll see how tomorrow goes

I honestly really enjoy driving the Traverse. We have a '15 Pilot and '10 Yukon XL Denali as other 3 rows in the family, the Traverse is my go-to. It has the best ride, a great cruising powertrain (it is clunky around town thought), it's the most comfortable, etc. And I think it looks pretty good to with the facelift and the pearl white paint.

I think you'll like it even more when you get it all fixed up.
