    Anyone tried Galvanised door bottoms and tops?

    I'm approaching that point in my rebuild where I need to find a solution for the doors. I have two door bottoms, both quite rusty, one of which still has part of a door top attached. Has anyone tried the galavanised door tops and bottoms from SP4x4? If so - what are your thoughts about the quality?
