Must we do all the work for you?
ATP lists Uni-Select as their distributor for Canada.
Use their parts store locator to find nearby stores and then call them to inquire if they have that ATP magic elixir in stock.
You mean I have to pick up a phone or actually go to one of their locations?

The work I'd like them to do for me is just list what they have in stock on their flippin' website and let me order it if they do, like any normal retail business does on this side of the Digital Revolution.

Certainly, it's much easier to simply whine about it in a post to an internet forum.
How badly do you want the stuff?

Judging by my recent attempt to procure wiper blades at an AutoZone store, it might not make any difference.
The website indicated that the wiper blades had to be ordered at the store, but the "Zoner" behind the counter said she didn't know how to do that.
It didn't help matters that the format of the product selection and information screen used by store employees is configured entirely differently from that on the AutoZone website.
I considered ordering them from RockAuto, but the cost of shipping made the price of the wipers more expensive than buying them locally.

By some transportation miracle, my package got back on the original schedule and will be delivered today after all! 🤠
Hopefully undamaged.

Um, is that whining in a post on an internet forum I see just above?

But OK, I may give them a call sometime this week, if I happen to remember during their business hours. And that's another thing: a website has much more extended hours.

I'm not getting my hopes up, though. The only products I've been able to find you can search for is their stupid merch.

I resolved the situation by taking my business elsewhere.
If it's Uni-Select, be a pal and ask them for me if they have any AT-205 in stock, would you?

Found some AT-205 purportedly available, and in Canada, no less. Says it's available in December, but I was able to put an order in for six bottles.

Reviews for this site are mixed, but the price is fair in Canadian dollars, unlike eBay scalping prices, and there's free shipping for my quantity, So I took a $114 gamble and will post my experience. This could work out to be a Christmas miracle.

They even ship to the US. Regular shipping to the US, which is via FedEx, is too much (like 30 bucks), but I found that when you get to the $99 for free shipping in Canada, as they advertise, you can also get free FedEx shipping to the US. In my example, it was ordering 6 bottles of AT-205 that qualified me for free shipping, to Canada or the US.

Still, as eager as you may be to get your paws on this unobtanium elixir, you should hold off until I confirm they can actually come through. I'll update.

No luck with any of the dealers listed on the Uni-Select site?

Unfortunately not. I actually did call and was told they had no stock anywhere in all of Canada. From sea to sea to sea, as the Canadian saying goes (The Arctic Ocean is counted.)

I thought of driving down to the Malone, NY Advance Auto, now that the border is opening at the end of the month without the need for a PCR test for trips under 72 hours for the fully vaccinated, but then I found the Wrench Monkey site. If they're just monkeying with me, though, I'm going to totally unleash on them.

On Scotty's forum (yes, I even went there), the upshot from all the posters dazed and confused for want of AT-205, is that it's not discontinued, but the company, like so many others these days (and reminiscent of the USSR), is at the mercy of supply chain and distribution woes, and that it might not be available until 2022.

Perhaps stop in here on the way back from Malone.

Maybe if the Monkey people turn out to be a scam, or if I go on a Cerakote run.


But then my dilemma will be, Malone or Plattsburgh? They're both enticing in their own way. Equidistant from Dannemora. You've got to see that very good miniseries Escape at Dannemora (TV Mini Series 2018) - IMDb to really get a feel for that region.

Dear plplplpl,

The ATP AT205 you had ordered is not in stock currently.

We can bring it in directly from ATP, however, the ETA is mid January.

Normally, we would offer an alternate in another brand however, we do not currently have one available for this item.

Please let us know how you would like to proceed.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to hearing from you.

Dear plplplpl,

We cannot make any guarantees on delivery of this product.

All the information provided is what ATP provides to us, and at this point they have pushed the delivery date back 4 times since this past April.

Is your transmission leaking that much?
Not 't all. It's for spritzing my undercarriage. :)

Which lasts longer, the struts or the strut mounts?
Let's find out!

Oh wait, that's the Project Farm guy's line.


Anyway, back to that annoying squeaky car noise. And yes, I'm being deliberately ambiguous about whether I'm referring to the suspension or to Scotty. :D
