I need some new front doors as the next part of my renovation of GB278. Having had trouble with fitting a pattern door when I replaced the rear door I want to get parts that will fit. I've been offered some 'OEM' doors (part numbers LR703L and R) and some ex Puma doors (part numbers LR029310 and LR029311). Does anyone know which to go for?
Thanks in advance.
Steven

Personally, I would buy only genuine - but its down to personal choice - you do find them coming up on ebay and places.

Puma doors fit no problem and will last longer, you can use the original door cards also with a small trim.

Just in case anyone needs front doors I eventually purchased John Craddock supplied ALR6256 and ALR6257. They are 240 + vat each and as near to original as I think you can get. No spacers needed and all old door parts refitted without problems where needed.
GB278 well on the way to fully refurbished.
