After lifting the engine a few holes - she revs to 6000RPM no problem - I'm just awaiting a 17 or 19" to become available....John at Ribstuff is looking through his stock for anything suitable....just awaiting to hear back.

Cheers

Very nice job I doubt many Ribs come out of Ribcraft looking that good. I have a 5.45 and I am looking to fit a similar bespoke stainless spray screen and grab rail that you have fitted where did you get your one please.
