Shortages and problems with supply blight our industry at the moment, but can the very old idea of reusing parts from scrapped vehicles help the situation?

Prices might be increasing across the board, but garages must charge the same MOT test fee as a decade ago. Is it still worth the candle for workshop owners?

All these questions and more are answered in the Autumn edition of CAT Magazine. Read it here.
