Modifying S10 Tailgate

I have an S10, and I am looking to improve on the current stock one I have. It is heavy, and catches a lot of air (and I know that it needs to catch some air).

So, I have been looking for a lightweight aluminum one with no success (except for one: DOUBLEGATE HINGED FLOW-THRU OR SOLID 5 WHEEL TAILGATE E - JCWhitney)

I was also considering a fiberglass one with air pass-through holes, but couldn't find any for sale (I'm not surprised however). It wouldn't be cheap either.

My other option is to strip my existing tailgate down and cut it up. But, I'm a little worried about rust, even if I paint some of the bedliner stuff on it.

Do you guys have any ideas?
