    PRODUCTION DATES 1948 to 1953 - 80" SERIES 1 BULKHEAD

    Over the course of production, The Rover Co. engineers made multiple incremental improvements to their bulkheads, but only ever used two Part Numbers, so Pegasus has introduced 'Type' numbers designed to easily identify which bulkhead you require, based on the month and year of when your Land-Rover went into production.  

    The following dates (listed below) are provisional and are based on actual production dates. The Vehicle Registration date is no guide to the Build Date.

    When ordering an 80” bulkhead, please specify if your Land-Rover is LHD or RHD. As standard we fit the Steering Box Strengthening Plate, Part No. 302536 to the relevant footwell.

    The Alternative Bulkhead, sometimes referred to as an Aluminium Bulkhead, was a stop-gap replacement bulkhead supplied after manufacture of the production 'pressed steel' variant had ceased.

    There appears to be a least two versions. One version is universal construction and has holes punched to suit LHD or RHD models. The second version has holes only punched for RHD fitment. 

    Whilst it is called the Aluminium Bulkhead, the later RHD version only has alloy footwells and middle panel – everything else is steel.

    The earlier version has an alloy main panel but with an upper horizontal steel frame to which the captive nut plates for the steering column bracket/grab handle and windscreen catches attach.

    There is also a similar looking bulkhead that was fitted to Minerva built Land-Rovers. These are an all-steel construction.

    OUR PROCESS

    "We would like to think, that if one of the original assembly workers at the Rover factory in Solihull, viewed our bulkheads today, he would find it very difficult to detect any differences to the original".

    MADE STIFFER, STRONGER AND CORROSION FREE

    Our parts are fabricated with minimal pressing, preserving metal thickness. Using modern design and materials, we have improved performance by strengthening and stiffening weak points by 50% compared to the original bulkhead. This means that not only does the bulkhead maintain its original appearance, but it is also more durable and long-lasting.

    INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS

    We utilize our own designs and patterns to cut and shape the final parts. We have invested in advanced tooling to create a bulkhead that is comparable to Rover's original engineering. Pegasus have extensive experience in sheet metal work and are able to replicate all original pressing details, holes, spire nut locations, and footwell ribs.

    SPOT WELDED LIKE THE ORIGINALS

    Pegasus bulkheads are constructed using the same spot welding method as the original bulkheads. The majority of the parts are joined together using spot or TIG welding to create sub-assemblies, which are then assembled into the final assembly. To ensure precise bulkhead geometry, the assembly is constructed on a 36 reference point jigs.

    FINAL STAGE TIG WELDED

    Pegasus utilize TIG welding on the final assembly for heavy-duty brackets, lap joints, and butt joints. The heavy-duty brackets such as the bonnet hinges, tie rod brackets, and bottom feet are also welded into place using TIG welding to replicate the original oxy-acetylene welding method. We maintain the highest standards in our manufacturing process and have complete control over the quality of each finished bulkhead.

    WHY CHOOSE PEGASUS?

    Technical excellence, outstanding craftmanship and an inexhaustible supply of Land-Rover knowledge.

    When you choose Pegasus, you’re choosing a passion for perfection.

    Made by hand in the UK, Pegasus have completed extensive research to the point where we can identify exactly which type of bulkhead you require, based on the year and month your Land-Rover went into production.

    Each part has been reverse-engineered and accurately CAD drawn, generating very precise manufacturing drawings to replicate Rover's original specifations.

    All component parts are laser cut and CNC folded. The bulkhead assembly is then authentically spot-welded, arc welded, and finally TIG welded on our purpose-made jigs using 36 alignment points.

    MADE IN UNITED KINGDOM

    All our bulkheads are drawn, parts manufactured, assembled and surface finished with red-oxide primer, made in United Kingdom to ensure consistent quality standards.
