Shower enclosure help

Ok as usual er indoors changed her mind.
We are in the process of refurbing a downstairs bathroom, and it was decided that the old rectangular shower enclosure would be thrown away, and instead she wanted a wall built to make an alcove type shower. As expected the wind has changed direction and she no longer wants an alcove, but wants a rectangular enclosure again! To make matters worse she has turned up today with a "bargain". She has bought half of an enclosure from B&Q for 20. All that is in the box is the fixings, and the pivot door. It is missing the wall chanels, and the plain glass wall section. Is it possible to buy these anywhere on their own at a reasonable price? I have had a look and cannot seem to find the wall chanel anywhere, surely it is a fairly standard component, I am obviously not using the right name.
thanks

Lol both!
After further questioning she paid 20 for the door(normal price for all of it is 599), so she is forgiven if I cannot use it. Although it might be possible to buy a cheaper enclosure and use the wall channel from that.

I love the way the dear ladies force you to spend several days and hundreds of pounds to ensure that they can use the 'bargain price' crap they picked up that is still worse quality and more expensive than you could get it at the BM's...that cheap bath..now more or less encased in car body filler to keep it from flexing..that loo cistern that needed a complete new valve assembly to get it to work..the list..is endless.

You are soo right, they just don't get the idea of buying the right tool for the job, instead they just see you wasting the cost of a new hairdo or handbag when you could be spending 10 times longer codjing something together. Granted that must have tool will often then sit on the shelf with all the other specialised (power)tools, rather like their collection of shoes or handbags..... But in this case I have some sympathy, how can the sheds/retailers justify £599 for a glass panel and a glass door and some aluminium extrusion. Can anyone point me in the direction of a 900mm rectangular shower enclosure with a pivot door for a reasonable price?
