I got my new seat covers this week

Post by Steve on Sat Dec 11, 2010 3:43 pm

My new re-pro Oyster Hobnail seat covers came in this week for my Pace Car. The look pretty much exact, I couldn't believe it. The hobnail looks right as does the doeskin vinyl. I can't wait to get these puppies on.

I am going to have to wait on paint and decals this year. The state of mass is looking for money and found a big error on my 2007 tax return. I used Turbo tax and they only decalared my Mass earnings that year whereas I made half my money in CT. Turbo Tax still took a credit for CT tax though leaving me out $17000. At least they will pay the penalty under their guarantee.

That really sucks. Has Turbo Tax acknowledged their error?

Oops, I made an error, I'm out $1700, not 17000. I have to submit proof of payment to Turbo Tax and then their guarantee will pay the $255 in interest. This is fair I suppose.

It really is bad because in 2007 I had a lot of stock market winnings and had to pay them an awful lot. Now that the economy is in the tanker we are making nothing. My core positions are good since I'm invested in silver and gold. Gold is an an all time high and so is silver if you ignore the Hunt brothers cornering the market in 1980.

Good advice on that Martin. I took the interior out to install some new plastic pieces. My other car has an Oyster/Carmine interior and that color does not hold up well at all. Severe chaulking that I don't think the guys with darker interiors have to suffer with. If plastic lasts forever in a land fill you would never know it by these pieces. I now have two cars worth of brittle and disintegrating oyster plastic in my basement. I have been collecting OEM replacements for years so I just have to give them a respray in oyster. By the way, the SEM phantom white is an exact match for oyster.
