Anthony

I don't know with absolute certainly about the availability of floor panels, but I know when I had the sills done on my vert recently, they had to fabricate the panels as replacements weren't available off the shelf so I'd say its likely the same issue with floor panels

Sills are available, tho I'm not sure where from
Aston at Essex Rotary has a source for some.... not cheap tho at around £2-300 per side. I may be needing one for the EGI
Floorswise I dont think there are any suppliers or not that I could find
