New Galvanised Bulkhead – A specialist paint job for Stuart
Into the workshop this week we took delivery of this new galvanised bulkhead for a Land Rover Defender. The Land Rover bulkhead can be prone to rust and if replacing it’s difficult to get a better result than with a brand new bulkhead. A refurbished bulkhead would be cheaper but new steel galvanises better and in our experience achieves a better final result. See the transformation in pictures below.
We’ve got lots of experience with Land Rovers and you can find some before and afters of Land Rover Defenders on the blog. If you’re after a restoration, refurbishment, or just straightforward body repair please fill out our online form to get an estimate from our expert team.
Bulkhead from steel to Epsom Green
With any paintwork, the preparation is half the battle. After cleaning and ensuring there is no grease present, the first job is to key all of the surfaces with an orbital sander. The harder-to-reach nooks and crannies need to be done by hand to ensure an even surface throughout.
