Rib repair - West Sussex

Hello all

My new (to me) V520 has a small leak in one of the tubes, that has been there since purchase. The dealer I got it from has agreed to pay. Can anyone recommend anywhere near Bognor/Chichester to get it repaired. I've found JCraft - has anyone used them?

Thanks in advance Oli

I've used JCraft a lot, and met a few very happy customers of his, his work is excellent and a quite few dealers send their repairs to him

.... and very local to you.
