Guess you need to determine what structural loads the bulkhead is supposed to handle. For example, does it have chainplates for standing rigging attached? Was it tabbed to the hull and/or deck?
Many 70''s era boats are experiencing bulkhead failures which have lead directly to demastings. A number of boats represented in the Sailnet Lists are experiencing similar failures (I know the Cal forum for one has excellent archives containing a lot of good "how to''s).
Once you know what it is supposed to look like, the actual work is labor intensive.
If you need directions in the forums, give a shout.
