Apologies it this is a repeat thread. I have used the search function and other threads and comments appear quite elderly.
I am looking to order some new panels (full floor, sills both sides, boot floor repair etc) and have been on several supplier sites. Bull Motif are cheaper than others by quite a bit. My question is are their panels up to scratch?
Cheers, Rich

as there all pattern panels you get what you pay for,
never used BM for panels so cannot comment

ESM panels most fit some need tweaking some are the old Henric design which were the best,

try to get them made in uk and not far east

be prepared for some modifying


When its done its done (for now)

Cheapest does not always mean best. I would go with ESM as that's the one's I used on Molly-Gail. :)

I bought all the panels for my restoration from Bull Motif. Very pleased with them. All fitted pretty well, UK made and at a good price. I would use them again. They were superior to the imported panels sold by a famous supplier in the south west anyway......
Are the panels sold by ESM actually different panels? They seemed exactly the same to me?
