What i do not understand is that one will spend money on the brand logo while the brand or rib factory should supply you with one bcoz it is in his interest!!!!! Then i should spend money on a creative one made by myself....got it i hope.....
that would be nice, but I guess the manufacturer would want you to take the rib back to them for re-tubing, which would then add to the overall cost

Or you could order them and they never bother to send them so you cancel the order and get Ribshop to sort you out.

Anyway whatever...

reread what you are commenting please.

so the manufacturer wants NOT to help you or sort it out?
But you will pay for him and make publicity for him???
I do not know but i have a strange feeling about that to be honest!!!!
I am very proud of my Ribquest (whether a good brand or not in your opinion is not of interest here) but if i would have to replace the logo, i would hope they will send at least one or two to me or ribshop!!! If not my belief in the brand would be shocked!! How about you guys???

Am i alone with this opinion?

hopefully it will be a long long time before your Ribquest needs new tubes, they do make nice ribs but let's hope if you do need new logo's then Ribquest will do the decent thing and send you a set

I fear you may be. If the badge fell off your Volkswagen at 80,000km, would you expect your dealer to "give" you a new one? - of course not!

Many older RIBs have damaged or worn logos - why would someone not improve the original when replacing?

Those CNC logos are the mutts nuts

Hahaha
You are afraid now of the Black Shadow gang!!!!
I know you, you know, we even met but you do not remember....

About the VW logo: A car is so recognizable, i mean everybody will obviously notice the difference between a VW and a Range or Opel or.....And btw if it fell off bcoz of misfunction i guess they will replace it!! but i guess it will never fall off just like that (unless stolen like the Mercedes ones)

With ribs only those who are really experts can differentiate between brands or i am wrong again???? And i guess every manufacturer wants his brand to market as good as possible!!!

i think i will now shut my mouth!!! endless discussion otherwise!!

at least i know where to go for lasercut top of the notch quality logos!!!yeehhh the UK !!! I love your country gentlemen, and evenmore your ribs and ribbing
