Oh God! I had a horrid phone call with Dave "who knows all about your
order". I expect delivery of a panel from Sanburn this week. I started
talking to them in March or maybe April. Admitedly this delay is not
entirely Sanburns fault & I am in Australia, but they are not the most
responsive organisation. I fully agree that they are friendly and most
definately cheap, but you'd better be patient.

Thats Kim from Quattrosports, far more responsive than Sanburn but twice
Seems to know what he's talking about, but I understand that there is some
controversy surrounding Quattrosports. No problems in my experience, but I
havent paid any money & I certainly defer to our very experienced &
knowlegeable UK listers.
