    Good most breakers yards just hack bits off, write on the ,face sude, eg wings , clusters etc.

    They always charge over the odds for old knackered parts, then add VAT!

    Must be making fair wedge to charge vat!

    Meat head indeed!! sigh.

    Great source of used parts which keeps many of us out of the hands of the greedy garages/dealers. Always worth supporting. Mind you elf n safety leaves a lot to be desired visiting any of them. So few left these days.
