So due to him being a dickhead I wont be posting anymore , or helping anyone with anything - top work by the twat on that front .

Ban me or whatever - dickheads aren't something I need .
Dont go, just ignore any comment that winds you up, thats what I do. I am rather miffed at the moment with a member on here who stated they had an A Frame that was to quote "In A1 condition" and "never used", so I did a 4 hour round trip to go and view it with intention of purchasing it and found it was not in A1 condition and had been well used, many minor scratches, one small dent, and it was obvious it had been fitted and used as steaming light glass wasn't shiny, more dull looking and nav lights still had wiring attached running through tube and cut off about an inch below tube where it had been taken off and wiring was cut to get it out I presume. So I wasted 4 hours on a sunday and fuel and my time. Point being never believe anyone selling you something and dont get wound up by human nature. LOL.

Update to this, response from 'Low Flyer'

"I sent you pictures where you can see all your points,if you are looking for a brand new one why don't you spend your money and buy a new one ? You are obviously looking for hens teeth.
Lesson learnt, if offerred anything by 'low flyer' be cautious if he advertises things as "A1 condition and unused".

Correction to this, it was advertised as used but not used by the seller, however seller advertised as A1 condition which it certainely wasn't.

"Guesswork is less work"

Boris has retracted/corrected his original accusation of having been duped by an advert that was for an Unused item. He points out now that the advert was for Used but A1 condition (supplied with photos it seems too). Used and Unused are very different things IMO. Used and A1 condition does not imply New in my book. What would a "Used but A1" condition RIB be like? New? Surely not...

yep have learnt my lesson, A1 condition apparently doesn't mean in perfect condition which is very different to what I understood the term meant. LOL ..

Hey Pete, dont let the let the bugger get you down.
I and others, would much rather you posted and commented on the forum, more than some others shall we say.
For the priviledge of "free" speech, you have to put up with some dollards!
