101 Projects Book

My wife ordered this for me from Amazon and there is a 1-1/2 month lead time. I tried a few months back to order one and it was backordered. What's up?

Same here. About five days because they were waiting on another part.

Order the book directly from Pelican...mine came signed by Wayne. Already saved me big headaches when I needed to R&R my alternator; plus it's enjoyable just to read!

Yes +100 for Matta,

The book is fun to read and the photos are of the best quality you will ever find. And, you will find yourself getting more and more interested in the way the Porsche engine works, which in my opinion is not a bad way to spend your time! Since Wayne's book I have purchased the Bosch Fuel Injection book and Bently's. But I give Wayne's book 5 stars for sure. Excellent job.

Just curious: how relevant is this book to a 1st generation Cayman?

If I buy it on-line, can you include a digital copy as well? I like to print the part I'm working on & leave the hard-copy 'clean' for leasure reading in my recliner, dreaming of the next project!
I'd also be interested in a Wayne/Bentley combo pack as well; if you could do that for me, maybe others would be interested as well.
Thanks for everything you put into this great site !!!

About 90-95% relevant. In fact, the cover should have said "Cayman" as well on it - that was an error.

There are no digital copies floating around, for obvious reasons (too easy to pirate). If you wish to keep a clean copy around, then I recommend purchasing two copies. They are only $20 or so each, and you will spend that much or more printing out the pages on your color printer...

Ordered both '101' & Bentley from Pelican a few minutes ago! Looking forward to some 'good reading'. :-)

I bought my copy at the local Barnes and Noble. I guess I could have driven up to the HQ in El Segundo to pick one up, it's not quite the same pulling up in the wife's minivan.

I don't even own a Boxster yet but the book is excellent!

So Wayne, what is the new address for when the Aussies come shopping with the great Aussie $$$$.
I bought spark plugs, belt, fuel filter,last October at your location near LAX airport.
This year the shopping list begins with PSS9s,sir wheel bearing tool, braided brake lines and the list goes on.
The deal is, whatever I spend on Boxster stuff, the wife can spend on clothing>
I win.

Does Wayne sign them all, I'm traveling so I can't check my copy but signed is a nice touch. I got mine quick up to Canada and its fun to read, could be a couple of years before I get to really use it on a car, got no room for another car right now and the warden is still getting used to the 930 and I really want a Cayman and they are still pricey up here.
I offered to get the wife a nice convertable for the summer, but when she heard the P word she said no cause I was just buying it for myself and I'd be ripping her off - she's pretty smart that one.
