bulkhead repair panel question

The repair panels sold by YRM and RN are flat only, meaning they are missing the inner rim that the vent cover seal seats up against. The question for anyone that has used these repair panels is what did you do to deal with this? I was thinking you could make up a inner rim that was square and fill it with fiberglass body filler to round the inside corner so water doesn't sit in there. Has anyone dealt with this? My bulkhead is in near perfect condition accept for this one corner so completely replacing it doesn't really make sense. The other option Is find a bulkhead that has wasted foot wells and just cut what I need off of it and patch it. It just seems odd that the new replacement panels are incomplete and it's not exactly an easy fix.

Thanks for any help you can give, Jason

Pegasus parts in the UK makes really nice OE quality panels. All else junk.

Jason: don't see flat panels on YRM's site. For BH repair.
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
