I'm surprised the likes of ExPressed in Keighley haven't done a few ADO16 panels, I know their Ford parts are arserapingly expensive

They do but like you said, they are not cheap! Think £302 per half floor for a panel.

Supposed to be excellent quality though.
Oldies: 1972 Austin 1100 2dr - Project Rust bucket, 1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
Moderns: 2000 Boxster - New enough to drive sublimely but old enough to nearly feel like a classic, 2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying.

my old man bought a 71 1300 new from his local dealer, resplendant in shite brown. it lasted to 1979 when it went for mot and the front subframe was described as "non existantt and falling out." dad had already welded up the floors and sills. 8 years. imagine a 2011 golf doing that....

We had a 72  Austin 1100 new. Rust round the headlights by '75 - traded in in 77 while it was still in one piece! It was that kind of thing that drove buyers away from BL product.
