Creative Engineering - thanks

Thanks to Mandy at CE! Ordered a 6 bow roofrack, needed it for next week. Was promised that it would definitely arrive on time. Well It did, it is superb! Also I managed to destroy a corner piece and rivets. Phoned Mandy and got some in the post the next day. Great service, thank you!
