I don't have a source for you but just curious, how bad is the original gate? Could the framework be straightened then a new skin or partial skin installed? Assuming collision damage is the reason for replacment. Ferguson or another skilled metal man might be able to fab up the sheetmetal you need. Just an idea/option. A lot of sheemetal thought once not to be repairable years ago is being repaired, just takes a plan and time. Hunting for a year is a long time. Bob
