Choosing repair panels

In terms of fit and quality, who currently makes the best cab and cargo floor panels?

Cheers,

Can’t say for the cargo floor but I’ve just replaced both sides of my cab floor with panels from Autocraft and they were excellent. Good standard of e-coating too.

Thanks. I've bought a few Autocraft items of late, although I haven't got to the stage of actually fitting any of them yet!

Scohfields seemingly promote WW as maker of the best cargo floor they offer.

I can't find it now but I'm sure I read a post on here ages ago from Will of Blasting Die Past where he mentions the different manufacturers he prefers for various items.

Be careful reading threads from a couple of years ago. Panels have changed a lot for the better recently. I buy most from Schofields (mixture of WW and Autocraft) and find them pretty well spot on in terms of fit and quality.
