Where can I buy the top section of the bulkhead for my 1993 Defender? I had the ends repaired a couple of years ago, but now the area below the windscreen and around the vents is starting to rust.
I don’t think the whole bulkhead is in too bad a condition and would like to weld a new section to the top of the bulkhead. I was wondering if they are available and whether it’s a feasible repair?

YRM Land Rover sells a variety of Land Rover repair parts. You might find what you’re looking for here.
These panels are quite tricky to replace, being double-skinned: you’ll have to remove all the plastic dash to get behind it to weld. I’ve done it using used bits cut from other bulkheads, but it’s fiddly getting it right.
Alternatively, it might be time simply to bite the bullet and fit a new, good secondhand or rebuilt bulkhead.
