              May I recommend doing a search at https://www.car-part.com/
              It's basically a "google for junkyards" you can select how far away it is, etc.

                I have been ordering parts for work lately, you know things are getting bad when I have multiple POs sitting on my desk with long lead time back ordered stuff from McMaster Carr.

                  well, since you mention things in short supply,,,,,,,,,
                  I been hearing that things are short supply, or expensive, because of all the free gov't money being handed out for people not to work.
                  Folks on minimum wage apparently get more money from the gov't than from min wage job, that not too hard to figure out.
                  BUT, I was in the grocery store the other day thinking of just that,,,,,,empty shelves.
                  But, does that make the cabbage quit growing? the corn quit growing?
                  Is the produce on minimum wage un-employment too??

                      What really shocked me was finding out that a lot of our produce is grown overseas...
                      at least in the "value" stores. The places where you save money.

                      The higher-end stores in my area use local farmers, but they aren't trying to be cheap.
                      You can tell by what kind of cars are in the parking lot
                      And by the looks of the women going in and out of there

                      Kind of like iron.
                      Its cheaper to ship it halfway around the world than it is to make it here.

                            Not just the UK. I'm hearing of driver shortages in every country developed enough to have delivery drivers.

                              I think its a result of globalization and 12,000 mile supply chains
