R107 Bulkhead Repair: Damp carpets, water in the footwell, temperamental blower motor, unpredictable electrics… There’s no doubt that these are symptoms of a rusty bulkhead. Unfortunately, the well-documented Achilles heel of the R107 SL has ruined many cars. Even later galvanised cars are not immune, because the metal inside the bulkhead was not galvanised by the factory.
Over time, we’ve seen horror stories in our workshop. As a result, we know that there’s no quick ﬁx for this particular ailment. Ultimately, there’s only one way to deal with the problem eﬀectively. That is, a Mercedes Bulkhead Restoration. In this procedure, we remove the dashboard, heater components, wiring and insulation to access the bulkhead. Then, we cut out the corroded metal and reﬁt brand new panels. Finally, we rust-proof everything.
Our R107 Bulkhead Repair work uses our very own bulkhead panels. Unlike other parts, this is exclusive to SLSHOP. Following years of dealing with rusted bulkheads, we developed it specially.
Finally, each bulkhead job we do comes fully photo documented. In addition, you’ll get a unique bulkhead certiﬁcate. Also, we’ll give you a sticker verifying that the work has been carried out to the highest standards by SLSHOP. See our video for more details.
