They are exact repo's and very good quality. (No weird creases as pictures show, must be bad pictures)

I....ummmm...went in my race car trailer and...ummm...looked at mine.
Does that count for anything?
It's stored in there until I finish some other projects in the shop.
I DID however, do some sway bar inventory trying to figure out what parts I have for the rear sway bar.
Sigh.

As ive heard so often here "I drove mine today like it was stolen". Freezing temperatures and empty roads so I took the Targa Top off and went for a blast.

That's a good buy. Thanks for the link.

No one did anything to their 911 today? I didn't. Normal 11 hour work day doesn't leave much time for much else.

At 62, I've become a whoose when it comes to the cold. The Cayman, on the other hand, starts to get cozy PDQ.

Removed one rear brake caliper to send to PMB Performance for refurbishment. It was 22F in my garage..so I only got the one off. I'll get the other tomorrow and send them out this week.

Gave it a wash and then air dried it with 100+ MPH wind. It's more gentle than towel dry and leaves no spots.

That"s great. Where does one acquire this "wind" ?

It's the factory "Auto Dry" option. There's a foot activated pedal on the floor that allows high speed wind to blow dry your Porsche after a thorough washing. Those Germans thought of everything I tell ya.

Or...

A Craftsman 16gal. shop vac leaf blower function was used to air dry the car.

LOL! That's the same control I use to turn up my A/C...the long pedal on the right in concert with windows and sunroof open! Amazing that they can seamlessly integrate multiple features into one control device!

BTW, I love your car...but I'm really wanting rear wheel spacers to fill the wheel wells out.

Installed a door panel

I installed a new door panel etc from Classic 9 Leather Shop. Now I wish I had the money to have Robert do the entire interior.
