If the queen didn’t want my hands in my pockets, then why would she have hand sewn the CAF’s uniforms to have pockets on every piece of issued kit?

Did a thing today. Seat is definitely more comfortable than the stock one, but not by enough that I would suggest anyone spend the money if they weren't having issues like I was. Using the instructions on this forum to jump out the airbag worked perfectly, so no warning light on the dash. The install itself was easy, as was moving the belt buckle from one seat to the other. Although I did have to run out to the hardware store and pick up a bolt, nut, and some washers to fasten it to the new base. I also ended up running the seat belt through the hole for the harness since it was rubbing up against my neck without a shoulder fastener.

Overall very happy with it, and once my bank account recovers from holiday travel, gifts, and this seat, I'll replace the passenger side as well.

Their existence prevents the redundancy of the rule.

Oh, I was referring to a US Army soldier of back in the day.

I suspect I know why your Queen had pockets put in your uniforms pants pockets -

Negligibly, if at all. The seat base requires a riser in order for the bottom of the seat to clear it, and once I had everything adjusted to be comfy I only had to move the rear view mirror a tiny bit. I believe there are lower seat bases than the Planted one if that's what you're after, and I know of a few people who have modified them to maximize headroom.

A friend suggested that I try a foamectomy in mine. Today after seeing your seat I went out and while poking around, seriously considered it for the first time.

Went to a concert tonight for the first time in years.

Pretty intimate venue- Slim's in SF, if you've heard of it.

I actually didn't go for the headliner band, lol. I went for the 2nd opener, which is actually a band that's mostly been retired for the past 10+ years.

It was super nice as a way to destress because I've had a lot going on lately. But also because a friend - who passed away back in 2014 from lung cancer - was the person who introduced me to this band's music, way back in like 2001.

So it was a kind of nice way to reconnect with an old friend, so to speak, and in more ways than one, since this was coincidentally also the first time I'd gotten to go see and hear this band live. I guess even cooler because it's a small, rather 'unknown' band. Never as big in the alternative rock scene as the obvious bands you'd hear of, mostly an opener/support band whose songs were occasionally used in network tv shows, etc.

But yeah, it was nice. Glad I got to do it.

From taking apart my seat before just replacing it, the covers can be a huge pain to fully get off, particularly without damaging them. So much so that when I do replace the passenger side, I'll probably buy another occupancy sensor as opposed to trying to get the one out of the current seat.

When I eventually do sell this car, the next owner is going to need a u-haul for the stock bits, which I want to keep in working order.

What type of LLC?
It took me 3yrs to close the last one. The gov kept sending me new and revised tax notices. One was huge $1.25. It had to have cost them a lot more to do the research and paper work and the mailing.
They knew I would pay as it would take me a lot more to fight.
