I'm getting it retubed by a guy I know up the country, lencraft don't do PVC, I'm not sure about red bay. I have been quoted anywhere between 1700euro to 4500euro

What is the thickness of the PVC fabric you are retubbing your rib with, the heavy duty reinforced 1.2 mm fabric ? Don't go for less, will last longer than standard and much cheaper than hypalon. I think you cannot glue right Hypalon accesories on pvc tubes, which glue to use hypalon or pvc, that is the issue ? Will ask my Zodiac tecnician latter, he sure knows as he works with both fabrics.

dont forget that some rubbers and pvc will react badly to each other and cause plasticer migration and the pvc will become brittle in a very short time
