SP Galvy doors

Anyone have any experience or thought on these doors?

DEFENDER 90 110 LH FRONT GALVANISED PUSH BUTTON DOOR (GALV STEEL SKIN)

Just realized I started this thread before for just the skins.
These are a bit different as they are Galvy frames and skins already assembled.

Jonesy has them, and is very happy with their galvy doors as well as a few other folks I've spoken with. The *only* gripe I've heard is that their response time is a bit sluggish, as are most vendors in the UK . I actually reached out to them via email with some questions awhile back...and now that I think about it, literally never received a response.

I have ashtree galv doors with alloy skins,split door. They are so much more solid that the welded up originals, even the non rusted areas are a thicker gauge steel.

They also came with both styles of door check rod attachments

I have a set of their doors (bottoms of two piece doors actually). Very good quality. Excellent customer service and the doors were packaged very well for the trip to the US.

Second this on their terrible response time. Got an order of parts two weeks back, was missing one thing. I've sent two emails and crickets so far.... Very frustrating, especially since I would like to order more stuff from them.

Same hear, they just don't respond to email. Have send them several in the last year or so. Also phone is almost never answered and the one time I spoke to them they promised to email me. Yes, still has to happen.
Wondering how people place an order there.

Order was placed online and it was very promptly shipped. Had an issue in customs (not sure if paperwork was missing). If the one part wasn't missing I would be completely happy.
