What kind of funny "items" or mark-ups have you seen on invoices? I'll start.
- Blinker fluid. (obviously)
- Muffler bearing.
- Exhaust pressure return hose.
- Crankshaft level sensor.
- Piston return springs.
- Can of compression.

The can of compression is a very expensive product. The muffler bearings can be bought at a very low price.

Wait til you see the price on 5-gal pails of compression... Don't even get me started on the 55 gallon drums...

In my old days I once got an estimate that said “R&R JD Moulding” I was like “what are you talking about with that” and Mackie was like, you pay for that and we go buy a bottle of Jack Daniels....
