Thanks.
Busy working through my chassis having to skip all cp parts.
Don't want to have to go way back to sort all the parts I missed.

Yes, I only just found out today that Andy does them.
I didn't want to pester him as he was very busy when i saw him the other week.
Any idea on delivery time from gillham?

No I haven't, I will just wait till tomorrow and give them a ring.
Hopefully they will keep some in stock but its no problem if I do have to wait for them to cut them.

Contacted gillham today and will get steel monday and have them sent before end of the week. So that seems like good service.

Gillham seems a good deal, unless you have direct access to a cnc machine it's not easy / cheap to get the plates cut unless you are buying huge quantities. From my experience some of the e-bay suppliers can be a bit rough, no names mentioned.

Received my order from gillham and have to say I am very impressed with both the quality of the products and customer service.
Will definitely use them again and couldn't recommend them more.
