    New euro regulations require a peak collision bulkhead to be retrofitted to my 21 x 4 meter rivetted steel 1929 motor tjalk.
    Has anyone experience of doing this horrible job ?
    I propose to fit 50mm T section uprights to the 50mm angle framing with steel plates bolted between.
    what thickness plate minimum -- 2mm ?
    very small working space 4 x 1 x 1.4 M high and only 500 mm diameter top access hatch.
    Any info and advice welcomed
