|tech69||I would hope this is an insurance job and maybe it's a recovery that got vandalized cause as a customer no way I pay that amount for the tiny rip on the very bottom. After seeing that price tag I'd break out the glue and be happy about the fact no one will even see it. Customer pay? Is the only damage the small tear on the bottom?|

Im not surprised. We sell Tremec trans parts and the Mainshaft Reverse gear for a T56 (which is commonly replaced during a rebuild) was $86 over the counter. Its now 3 times that. In 16 months.
Hey Brian; you ever see the deal on genuine Honda S2000 seats? Google it. Several years ago, you couldn't get an assembled seat from Honda. The dealership orders the parts to MAKE a complete seat; which leaves you with a mechanic doing upholstery. It used to be a couple grand in parts, plus labor for ONE seat. And the S2k roadster has 4 bolts that hold the seat in. They were getting ripped off all the time out here

The alternator on our Opel DD stopped working, the guy at the parts store told me
there were no parts available to service it.
A new one would cost me $368....
No part exchange either, so for a few parts the old alternator is scrap.
A search on the internet got me one from Amazon.de (Germany)
for $84 also brand new, and shipping to Spain cost $30.
I canīt wait to go back and tell that rippoff merchant.
Total cost for a Powermaster alternator from Summit to my door,
shipping and taxes included was $296.

The other tough situation that happened when the economy went south was we had suppliers go belly up who provided proprietary parts. Try to tell a customer who has a 140,000 road tractor broken down that you can't supply the part he needs......and don't know when you can.

It's insurance and we tried to find used, they all came more damaged than the one that is coming off the car.
