Quicky on the bulkhead…. The friendly folks from Ashtree Land Rover went out of their way (quite literally) to delivered the original restored and galvanised bulkhead last week. Many thanks to Jill, Lyn, Nathan and Jake for making this happen.

Ashtree have also supplied the 3 new doors. (more on these later)

As with the chassis, the bulkhead, being the only other significant piece of steelwork in a Land Rover, has been galvanised (zinc plated) all but eliminating future rust.

Orignal bulkhead with new (correct) foot wells, door pillars and hot dipped galvanised… No more rust here.
More on this topic as we get to grips with the technicalities of painting on zinc…

Many thanks to the team at Ashtree.
