    i've not seen a repair panel for this but when i done my own one a long time ago i had to remove the bubble and i put a section in that i bent myself (13 yrs ago as a sheetmetalworker easy to make bends)ask local machine shops if they have a bender that could do such a small fold or even something a bit bigger and buff it down to the size required

    The only thing that comes close is the bulkhead top panel from 'Expressed Panels'. Good but not cheap! Espeacially as you would be cutting a small part out of it to use.

    Just make up a section from flat sheet with bends/folds as required to make it match the original. That is what I did.

    or have a one in a million lucky find like i did! Found this bloke selling the entire bulk head on ebay for 20! ...and it was just down the road from me!!!

    Just be careful not to rip up the original dome when you prize it off and you will be fine. It's a piece of piss to repair the bulk head once that's off
    I'm going to pull your head off because i don't like your head!

    They do a one piece repair panel for the area under the heater bubble (if that is the bit you are talking about). Equivalent to 90 pounds from memory.

    There is a pic of it in the first few posts of this thread....
