Shielder bulkhead

Hi, has anyone bought one of the new galvanised bulkheads from Shielder? I'd be very interested to hear any thoughts on them. Thanks 2006 TD5110 station wagon

Gutted that I've just bought a knackered old TD5 bulkhead to be refurbed and galvanised. If I'd seen these a week earlier...

Interested to hear anyone's experience though.

Just ordered a 300tdi chassis and bulkhead from them. I will of course let you know if it's any good when I get it (said lead time of about 5 or 6 weeks) Matt.

were all waiting to see one at a show or hear from somebody that bought one and has fitted it.

cheaper than rebuilding an old one for sure if they are any good and have all the holes and bits in the right places.

The windscreen looks like it will be fun to fit, the holes for the screen brackets look well off.

It's missing the double skin strengthening plates for the pedal boxes and chassis to bulkhead brackets in this pic.

I hope they'll be at Kelmarsh this weekend, so some of you guys can assess their suitability on behalf of those of us less fortunate, who cannot make it to the show. Thumbs Up 2006 TD5110 station wagon

They're not on the published exhibitors list for the show this weekend. If they do happen to make a late entry I would very much appreciate some photos and feedback on their galv bulkheads.
Thanks in advance. 2006 TD5110 station wagon

A friend of mine from the US (now lives in the UK) has a small garage business rebuilding and galvanizing bulkheads (and starting to do door frames sometime)

At the moment he only has LHD ones, will be starting RHD in the near future. Has proper beeft bent ujp footwells welded back in place.
He started doing it after seeing what a god awful job Shielder were doing.

As soon as I get the nod I'll pass on the contact details.
