This LRO reader emailed LRO.firstname.lastname@example.org to ask Dave Smith about bulkhead rot issues with his Land Rover Defender 90.
My 90’s bulkhead is rotten above the top door hinges. Can these be replaced?
James Crutchley, Suffolk
Yes, bulkhead repair sections are available. You’ll need to remove the doors and top hinges, and the windscreen and its hinge or mounting block; also some of the interior plastic dash trim, to avoid setting it on fire. Weld the new pieces in and paint to finish. When you have painted it, drill some holes on the inside and spray anti-rust wax into the hollow sections.
