Bulk head removal kit

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install mine today and it's very very tight between the top of the bulkhead and the return edge it sits on. Anybody done this before have any advice or something I may have missed? 

 

Cheers

I did mine a few months ago, the hardest bit was cutting down either side from the top, really just in terms of accessibility, I ended up using a combination of an angle grinder, "sabre" saw and jigsaw to get in there and to cut the curve profile reasonably accurately, you don't need to be all that precise though because the angled piece that goes over the top covers the top inch or so of the cut edge.

A decent riveter helps too.

I also removed all the seats to make access easier.

Thanks for the reply! So the two bolts that hold the bar in place that go in from the top into the bars cross section... do they require holes drilling or do they go into existing rivet holes?

As I remember it they screw into tapped holes in the upright ends of the square section bar but didn't quite line up with the rivet holes, it was easy enough to drill the extra holes to suit with careful measuring, then once the top plate was lined up and screwed down, the holes for the rivets can be drilled.
