i dont think for 1 minute Dave at Ribquest would have taken any money off you mate if he could not finish the job

its a shame whats happened to him, i just hope the new owners appreciate they have a fantastic rib and all the hard work he as put in to making Ribquest what it is today
he made a fantastic job of mine and for that id like to thank him

Thanks mate, been down today with the mrs for final approval of any extras she will allow me to have, and a bunch of these went a long way to getting what I want.
The bench seat is going to have stainless steel backrest put on i, I also had to settle for the Etec 60 as Ian said the 75 would be too fast and dangerous for the design of the rib, which I've accepted, as he is the expert.
