Tax time!

Well, I just went on a spending spree (with the wife's consent...well until she sees how much i spent :)) with my tax return. I'm curious if anyone else used their tax returns for mustang gear? If so, list it!

 

I'll start...

 

To finish up my engine bay project:

1) Summit Racing LVLP spray gun - I have a 2hp shop compressor and it doesn't put out enough CFM for a HVLP (high volume low pressure) gun. The LVLP only uses 3 CFM at 30 psi and is great for primer.

 

2) Summit Racing Epoxy Primer & harder - I've done a lot of metal work to my firewall and overall engine compartment, and it's FINALLY time to cover up that bare metal with some primer.

 

3) body working supplies - filler, sand paper, stripper, respirator, etc.

 

4) New air tools! Body saw and mini grinder/cut-off wheel tool (forgot the actual name!)

 

To finish rebuilding/upgrading my front suspension:

1) 1" drop CJ pony parts coil springs.

 

2) Stock replacement coil spring saddles (still mulling over buying the daze DIY roller kit and converting these to roller :s)

 

3) Swaybar end links/bushings & paint for factory swaybar.

 

4) new wheel bearings, seals, races...

 

5) Camber kit from Open Tracker Racing

New plumbing maybe to include a fuel pump.

 

4 Barrel manifold and carb (may go used here), Headers too.

 

Couple new aftermarket seats.

 

Needs some trees cut down around the yard and if I can find someone to watch MA for a long weekend I sure would like a break.

I always end up having to sell stuff around tax time.

 

Ouch! Have more kids! I claim 2 kids which helps around tax time...But come to think of it, it doesn't really scratch the surface of what I'm paying!

 

I'm going to start another tread in a few years called "stuff I bought when I stopped paying for daycare". And let me tell you, the list will be LONG!

My two kids help me break even at tax time. :)

 

And I'll be the first one to post on "Stuff I bought when I stopped paying for daycare"!! I pay more for it now than I pay for my mortgage every month...

My kids are all grown and gone so I don't get money back but at least I do NOT have to pay in

I wish I was getting a return. Ole Uncle Sam is getting $2200.00 from me this year. :( I guess that is what I get for spending my IRA on my car and retiring but still working. Taxes killed me.
