Expectancy Interests
Market value less contract price. UdubBadger could not recover damages since UdubBadger purchased trim at a bargain price and any expectancy interests would unjustly enrich UdubBadger.
Restitution Interest
By theory of quantum meruit, Longtran, in giving adequate consideration by putting out of pocket overnight shipping expenses for UdubBadger, allowed for UdubBadger's unjust enrichment. UdubBadger consequently owes costs incurred by Longtran.

I gave you the rules, I am sure you guys can figure out who is at fault.
longtran did not 1. ask me for shipping money. 2. i didn't ask him to pay for overnight shipping (i've gone over this 3 or 4 times now) and 3. I also offered to pay him back the $33 for shipping if he was willing to make good on his word of replacing the poor fitting trim piece... he didn't answer to any of these things.
