Mines already tied up before I even filed At the end of this month, I have an appointment to get both fenders redone (rust removed, welding repair, paint and undercoat them.) This is running me 400$ but my body man has done great work to a previous truck quarter panel that was rusting. So there goes my money but better to get this done then to let it rot more.

Few smaller things, but the big one will be an OME Ultimate Kit from DPG Offroad.

I never get a refund, why would I give the government my money to hold and get no interest in return. It's not really a refund it was your money in the first place.

A real refund is money they give you that you did not give them.

actually a refund by definition is them giving you money that you gave them with no interest. they are RE- (the action of doing something over) FUND- (money) your thinking of a rebate.

I know but why would you want to give it to them in the first place since they do not pay interest, not that you get a lot from the bank but you can always buy more beer with it as you earn it.

I'll probably end up paying....

but next project once parts show up are LED taillights & side markers. Then sell the stock rear housings w/blacked out lenses hopefully.
