    Replacing rear guard paint protector

    Last of sticky stuff removed with Goof Off (found in solvents/paint remover in Bunnings paint section). Great stuff

    Valuing my LHD Middy

    Yes, matching no’s. He originally bought it for $30k so was more than happy with the changeover. It went to Sydney.

    Looks like you got a great car. I don't think my mates was as tidy as yours.

    Nope - it was white.

    I would have to check, but I believe it was.

    Valuing my LHD Middy

    A mate of mine sold his mechanically excellent US-sourced LHD SC for $56k about 2 months ago. Kind of a benchmark to work with 🤷‍♂️

    Replacing rear guard paint protector

    The car was warm when I started. I just used a plastic scraper to peel up the edges to get it started. Then peel away as per video below

    Replacing rear guard paint protector

    Peeling off should be easy. I did my 987 today. Will post a video. Next issue is removing the sticky residue.

    991 GT3 Market watch

    Now the guy who ran the GT car division is in charge of the 911/718 division. Hope he doesn’t bring those blind spots in engine--eering to the frontline products?? 😐

    Where did you drive your Porsche today?

    Had brekky at Fernvale Bakery then did Mt Nebo / Mt Glorious in reverse. Great run up the mountain, but too many cyclists ruining the run down into Brissy 🤬

    Caman prices over the last few months!!

    I think Boxster prices have been a stagnant, perhaps drifting slightly lower. Supply is good - demand, not so much. Lot's of cars are sitting and the good one's snapped up very soon after listing. 986s especially have drifted lower. 987 relatively flat. I haven't really tracked 981 prices because they're straddling 996/997 values.

    Rears have been sold. Make me an offer I can’t refuse for the fronts. Easily a couple of track days left in them

    Boxster suspension birthday options

    @Troubleshooter the ride is good. Passed the most important test - my wife can’t tell there’s sports suspension so that’s a win for the “street spec” coilovers 🍻 The car handles nice and flat but I still need to have a bit of a play with the shock settings. I think I need the rear a bit stiffer and maybe the slightest of softening at the front. Will play with the rear first and see how it plays out - fronts could be spot on when I get the back end sorted

    Boxster suspension birthday options

    Finally got around to locating a machanic to properly do the installation of my Gecko coilovers - thanks to MR Tuning at Ormeau.

    Not a problem, Garry. Happy to help on that front
