body panels

Curious if anyone has any experience with SP Landrovers from the UK? Specifically the galvanized doors with galvanized steel skins seems pretty cheap. Whenever you see something too good to be true......

What is the quality of the build, fit, finish and finish?

I ordered two middle doors - full galvy, and one rear door full galvy - VERY IMPRESSIVE! Get them primed!

His quality is awesome and the doors were very heavy, not flimsy shite. Packaging for shipping here was awesome too, he took the time to put rubber stuff around the entire box. All three of them.

Highly recommend. BUT, big but, he can take some time, and gets a little snarky if you are less than patient. Or like me, his invoice went to spam or somewhere, and I sent a few emails, my last one not so nice. And he had the perfect response to me "go find them somewhere else for my price" - I humbly apologized, and they were shipped HAHAHA

Purchased my new style rear door from him with no issues. Was a bit worried since it was coming from across the pond but it was packaged well and arrived damage free.

We stock some doors and panels from SP - the quality is very good but not always "perfect" since the material is often thicker than the original part. The wing panels are excellent - the doors are nicer than any of the other reskins that I've seen - and the other bits are well done.

The aluminum panels I got from SP are much stronger feeling than the aluminum I have from Land Rover.

My front wings are genuine Land Rover aluminum and they feel like they are incredibly soft, some kind of non heat-treated alloy.

The rear of my tub are SP panels. Relatively speaking, SP's panels make my land rover panels look like they are made of putty.
