The trouble with ribbing is when you have one your always looking for something you think will be better.

Bigger rib made the way you want it and bigger engines it never stops.

New ideas that you have thought of and all sorts.

Then there is the cost and you have to step back again and think about it.

My rib is old but its o.k. works well for me and does everything i need it to do.

But there is still that nagging in the back of your head saying GO ON make one.

As you say maybe one day !

Or unless i win the national lottery ha ha.

a good way of doing it is to buy it in kit form from someone and slowly build it up, the hull is the biggest part so start with the console, you can wire it and fit steering, switches, screen etc, put that aside when done and start on the seats and upholstery, designing seats or console ain't too bad and you can do them in a garage, i think a lot of guys on here have gone that route
