    It is very possible the bulkheads have been removed ...... extremely hard for any one say they were never there without knowing the specific model of what looks like a late T2 :rolleyes: there are some very good metal workers out there that wield a metal cutter with precision and can finish it off so you would never know that at some time there was a piece of metal there :eek:

    Dave @ Volkstrim is a member on here - hasn't a website but is on facebook ...... many members have used him with minor and major trim works and he is extremely creative so worth seriously considering him ;):D
