The problem is that if all the reproduced parts were of the same quality as the originals the cost of restoring a car would not only far exceed the resale value but it would be far out of the reach of all but the richest individuals. The trade off is to make cheap parts that are affordable to the average person.

I have an update to the never ending mast story. I received my mast by UPS today and it looks beautiful. I installed it and the radio stations are alive again. Where would we be without a working radio in our cars.

Now the problem. It seems when the invoice was sent it had the price of $0 as its worth for customs. Thats all the invoice said. When the mast went through customs they applied a $23.00 brokerage fee to the package. I had no choice of paying it. I dont think the staff at Pat Wilson's Thunderbird deals with shipping to Canada much. When I called them I asked them to please provide me with an amended invoice that shows a value of $1.00 plus put that the item is a warranty item. They gladly did this. I discovered with my phone tag game I played between UPS, the broker and Canada customs that the invoice must have "warranty" clearly marked on it. I should have just paid the $23.00 and let it go but it bugged me. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I burnt more calories and sent the amended invoice to the broker who after 5 phone calls and about 45min on the phone they now tell me there will be a $15.00 charge to amend the old invoice

I will not tell you what I said to them...

If anyone has anything shipped cross border under warranty I recommend that they get the seller to clearly put that the item is a warranty item.
