“Our bespoke bulkheads have proven to be an exceptional fit after integrating all the parts into computer-aided designed bulkheads” he said. The digital duplication process started with two old 1950 and 1951 bulkheads, which were beyond repair. To reverse engineer the exact look and feel of the curves of a signature Rover part in a three-dimensional CAD system is difficult at best, and interpreting the shapes for a computer can be time-consuming and an expensive process.
Replicating the main panel (pictured below) and main brackets (pictured right) was the most difficult part as Rover designed these components as single pressings. The complete assembly is built up on our purpose made jigs, using 37 alignment points, then TIG welded replicating the same techniques as the welders back in the 1950's.
“All this tradition can pose a challenge, especially when the Rover Co. made various upgrades throughout the years”. But to help fellow enthusiasts identify their exact bulkhead, Pegasus came up with their own system, based around the year and month each vehicle went into production. For the 80” bulkheads there are 5 different Types. Customers will save time and effort as all their bulkheads are ready to fit and are supplied with a red-oxide surface finish.
