I am in the process (almost done!) of replacing three bulkheads in my 1971 E32. Before I re-install a mahogany arch/support under the mast step, I am wondering if I should do any extra reinforcement in this area. There is some telltale cracking in this area, but I don't know if the thick mahogany support/arch was placed here before the cracking began.
I have a sectional drawing of this area, showing a laminated "beam" sandwiched in between the deck and head liner. This drawing is dated 1973. Does anyone know if the 1971 version is the same?
Thanks for any and all responses!
Happy New Year!
