It's probably not a good idea to use this SR as an example of how much a re-tube for an SR4 would cost as the criteria that Ed (Ribraff) was working to was somewhat different to a normal re-tube.
This SR is purely designed to be crane launched therefore emphasis was placed on reinforcing the tubes for the eventual knocks it will take during launch/recovery. A heavier duty fabric was used along with other mods to make it more resilient.
Im sure if you contacted Ribraff, he would be pleased to discuss costings with you.
What i will say though is that, considering the build qulity, it was very good value for money.
