It's been an interesting morning. I had intended to make my own radiator pads, but I had to order another part and was paying for shipping anyway, so I added a pair of John Regan's pads to my order from Lang's. Then I went to town to pick up the fan belt I ordered from Bumper 2 Bumper last week. It turned out somebody at the warehouse had screwed up and sent three belts. So the guys at the store sold me all three belts for the price of one. With a deal like that I didn't even kick about the shipping charge. But I did ask about it. It seems if you special order something and they have it sent from a distant warehouse, there's a shipping charge. But if you have them back order it from their jobber, there isn't. Lesson learned. From now on if they don't have something, I'll put it on back order.
Hmmm. Sounds kinda like going to the Huddle House and instead of ordering a cup of coffee, order a refill 'cause they're free.
