    Hi newbie here, so be gentle.

    I'm looking to replace a couple of door panels (3mm American oak mdf) in my van, can anybody help.

    Thanks.

    If they are no longer available try contacting a local joiner.

    My friend runs a joinery company and he quite regularly makes new doors to match existing ones (or close)

    you would be better using 3mm faced ply as it tends to be stronger and lighter

    Thanks for the replies, it's a 91 Kontiki, Andy is the ply easier to get a hold of? i work for a shopfitting firm that buys all kinds of board material but our suppliers dont use what i'm looking for and cant direct me to anyone who does!

    Regards.
