also bellmetric sells the gold reduced head metric bolts at 1/5th the price of LRD

Belmetric is great. I've used them for a few specific items. However, I wish they had a field in the cart to input a note for each line, in this case what part # one is matching. Receiving a box full of random hardware is a pain to reference back to LR part #s. I suppose I could create another spreadsheet..

Whenever I order from Belmetric everything is bagged individually by size

Dealing with hundreds of little polybags of hardware is a royal pain. All hardware was de-bagged, photographed, and sorted into parts organizers with custom printed labels noting the part number(s) (multiple in cases of succession), brand, and country of origin.

As briefly mentioned, many parts we unpackaged and photographed. The purpose of this was to contribute back to LRWorkshop and the community. Being able to lookup a part and see detailed photos is very valuable to see if it's what you expect, too look at details of it, and to see the differences between Genuine, OEM, etc. Over many nights spent unpacking, photographing, repackaging/sorting, and labeling I was able to upload nearly 300 photos. An unexpected benefit to the endeavor is that now when I'm looking at a part I'll recognize on of my photos which signals "You've already got that part, move on!"

The makeshift photo booth. Not ZG level, but adequate.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the vast majority of items were made in countries other than China. Some of the house branded items were even made in the UK.

I was also able to create some comparison shots. Interestingly, the Britpart pedal cover actually matched my old Genuine one (marked RA2) better, but I think it was because the design had revised at some point as seen on the new Genuine (marked RA3).

This thread makes me feel better about the dollars I refuse to admit spending/deny I spent/have no recollection of spending on parts and labor… yes sometimes it’s good to admit defeat and get a project moving again..
