    Has anyone attempted to make a new bulkhead? Mine is full of badly made holes in the wrong places and has started to crack around the pedal box. Replacement would be infinitely better to repair...
    Cheers Robin

    Cracking around the pedal box on Roadsters was a recognised problem and was solved by the fitting of a re-enforcing bracket. If you were to make a replacement bulkhead I would be inclined to use galvanised steel rather than aluminium alloy or stainless, both of which are prone to stress cracking.

    Robin, I'd go with Geoff's suggestion above, a bit stronger, and you can also look in Tech Tips for details of
    the triangular reinforcement plate that Marlin produced, locking the bulkhead to the bonnet side.


    Look at the build diary for Q67, to solve this problem I added a new layer onto the bulkhead and made up
    my own support for the pedal box area...pics Feb 2016 and April 2017

    As Mick used to work on submarines he'll no doubt pressure test the Roadster once finished!
