Bulkhead / Vent Repair
I posted a similar inquiry a long time ago, but received no responses that resolved my issue. I am hoping that I'll have some luck this time. My bulkhead is generally solid except the area just below the winscreen (above the front vents). The corners are great (they may have been replaced at some time) and the door pillars are top notch. The steel above the vents (particularly where the vent hinges attach to the bulkhead) are starting to show some rust through. Are there any replacement components, similar to the corner pieces that are available at Rovers North? Any UK sources? If not, I guess I will have to see if I can find the rare commodity of a body shop that actually has an experienced metal worker / fabricator. Thanks in advance for any advice.

YRM make some interesting bits:

There used to be some repair panels that covered the entire top portion, corner to corner including the vents. I think it was Craddocks.

I have a bulkhead repair panel that I'm not going to use. It replaces the entire top from below the hood to the windshield and side to side. I ordered from the UK, but found a replacement bulkhead.

Trying to find a photo. PM me if you're interested.
