Yes I have and my mates he maybe on the dearer side up to you to barter a bite considering the present financial climate. His work is good and he uses the best materials, I honestly haven't seen a bad job. Why don't you give Bruce B a pm and see if he knows anyone as he is local other ribnetters that maybe able to help are Tony Hill and Seaskills.
Hope you resolve the problem.
Cheers

I have no issues with Trail West - perhaps a bit more expensive than some, but does a good job.

You could maybe try Munros (01631 564463) or All Cars and Commercials (01631 565555)

Bought a DIY kit off the internet when I got quotes for fitting around here.
Good quality package by a well known maker came with full instructions and all parts went together like clockwork and worked out 250 cheaper. 4 hours with a mate.
Was so easy fitted another to my van.
