Bulkhead

The first job to be carried out on the car was the conversion to right hand drive. A re-conditioned steering rack was obtained and fitted. The pedal box was removed and used as a template to mark the holes on the right hand side of the bulkhead. The holes were then drilled and the slots filed out. At the same time the large hole, which the steering column needs to pass through was cut out. The old steering column support bracket was carefully removed from the bulkhead and used as a template; these are handed so a new one is needed. This bracket needs to be very carefully positioned before being welded on. Get it wrong and the steering column flexible coupling will catch on the bodywork. Finally to make the job as neat as possible pieces of metal were cut to shape and butt-welded over the redundant holes. A veneer of body-filler was then applied to finish the job off.
