Bulkhead repairer

Recommended Posts

Assuming I have not gone mad, I am sure I have seen a thread about someone who repairs bulkheads to a very high standard. I am sure this bloke was in Ireland somewhere.

 

I am well behind with my Series 2a project due to spending so much time abroad with work this year so I think I would like him to do it. His skills also far exceed mine from the pictures I remember

 

Anyone got his contact details/and or the thread?

 

Thanks


Sam

This bloke did all the Series 2 specific things such as the lip for the door seal and got it as close to original as possible. I am not sure Devon would do that?

 

Would you mind letting me know how much Devon charged you?

I can't remember the exact figure but it was around the £1200 mark. That was both footwells, one complete door pillar, both top corners and couple of bits around the two vent edges. 

I don't know, but worth asking them :)

Thanks Steve. I will post some pictures so you get an idea. I'm away with work again now which is really killing my workshop time. I want it to be right as I'm spending a lot on the truck overall and I don't think my welding skills are up to it

I've not had a whole bulkhead repaired, but I've had some repair panels from the welding wood:

They're nothing short of exquisite quality. We had a good chat at the Leafers at t'pit event earlier this year too. Top guy, hell of a craftsman. 

Thanks. I will investigate

For some reason the username moleman sprang to mind...an eBay user search was fruitless tho....

http://www.pegasusparts.co.uk/ourshop_90073/cat_377241-02-Bulkheads-4cylinder-models.html

have a look in there...not cheap but brand new!

I can't find him either. I think he is also on the mig  welding forum? The work looked outstanding. 

 

I really want to save what I have as it is 75% good, but thanks for the link

I follow the weldingwood on Facebook and the quality and attention to detail looks fantastic.

That's the one! Thank you. I have now found his Facebook page. The bulkhead I remember seeing is this one

I have emailed him and he hast quoted £650 for a fully restored bulkhead including galvanising and £80 to do the same on the front headlight panel.

 

Providing I can sort the logistics of getting it there and back that seems a good price for the quality of the work I have seen in the pictures

Theres someone in Doncaster who makes new bulkheads. I can't remember their name but google brings up this company;

http://www.landroverbulkhead.co.uk/

I think LRS Offroad have used some in the past but I can't remember if that's the right company, that said how many can there be in one town? They don't do a full range at the moment so I don't know if they will have the right one for your vehicle.

If you can whack it on a trailer I'm happy to help with a relay. I'll be heading back to my parents near Pembrokeshire later in the year.

An alternative is Luca I think his name was who works for Chris @ CLH Trailers. He has some seriously impressive welding skills. Possibly worth sending some pictures through to Chris and Andrew at CLH for a quote. They've got all the kit required for fabricating the panels and send all their trailers off for galving so they can easily do that. I had a complete rear cross member built up (Nige style, 5mm thick C section with additional 6mm spreader plates). Was something silly like £22 in materials and a few hundred for labour which considering it was bespoke, never done before and they removed the old one wasn't too bad.

Thanks Ed. He is going to send the courier he normally uses to pick it up on a pallet directly from mine

 

I spoke to him for about 30 minutes the other day and he certainly knows his stuff about bulkheads!

Just to follow up on this I went with Mosside Land Rovers and my bulkhead and front panel is now back He even arranged collection of it from me and sent it back. Total cost £940 to do both including collection and delivery :Dbulkhead.thumb.jpg.bcf06f6ba3f2e10449c0d16479c896d4.jpg
