    i'm using one at moment
    i have not sanded it to fit properly yet and it is at least as fast as the riva one i had before it
    doesn't seem as good in the rough but i have not sealed it either will probably do it this weekend

    the solas grate looks very similar to the R&D grate
    although there is a slight difference
    i only fitted the solas grate because i broke the riva grate
    and i already know of the dramas with the R&D grate on the GPR'S

    The Solas grates I saw were investment cast. The R&D products are sand cast huge difference in quality between these two methods of manufacture.

    i'm not sure what the diference is in the 2 methods
    the solas grate i have comes painted silver so i can not see the original surface but it does not look as smooth as the riva grate
    looks to be as rough as the R&D grate under the paint
