No bank balance ? Looking good! Bet you can't wait to drive it again.

You are so on the money there, I can't wait. ?

Spent a few dollars today.  Bought Mrs a new (to us) 2013 981 Boxster. Will be a couple of weeks to get finance & collection organised to take it back to Tassie.  Anybody wanna buy a 2005 987 S manual?

Car passed the PPI today with flying colours, thanks to @Dave Brennan for a very thorough inspection, and some great insights and info about lots of  Porsche things, including IMS issues etc

Wow, looks sensational.  

Lowering is the definitely the best enhancement you can do with these things.

That is garage envy right there, that's a nice work space you have Airhead.

Agreed. What a difference having the lift and space to work like that.  I'm always scrambling on the ground under car stands and jacks.

Very envious and lovely 914 you have there as well Airhead.

Thanks guys. Only been in this house 12 months and the separate garage space is fabulous. After painting the floor the next thing in was the hoist. makes life (and my back) so much easier.

Just to tease you. Looking to the left.

PRETTY IN PINK

Such another perfect day in Melbourne...I had made plans to go the Rob Roy Hill Climb, but decided..

instead of watching blokes/ladies having fun

I'd rather be having some fun too.  Driving the BBC for a few hundred K is pretty good fun to me. 

So cancelled my plans, asked the Missus if she wanted to go down to Port Albert to have 

a feed of the best fish and chips in Victoria.   and away we went.  

Half the V8 Holden car club were there along with a heap of friendly Bikies.

Fish and chips were again worth the 380k round trip. 

Faultless drive once again, and only about twenty K's off the 50K on the speedo.   I reckon its just getting better as the K's click up.

Washed it with the new foam applicator and Karcher makes an awesome difference to the cleaning process. Need to buy one of the air blowers to dry it so it’s ‘no touch’ wash treatment. This process is also a lot quicker to do the 2 cars.

im also thinking a Matt xpel wrap, but not sure of the investment on a 4 yo car that I might only hold another 12 months.

Tips, just for interest....a couple of us purchased one of these from a Mitre10 store down here, only about $70.00 from memory, may have even been cheaper.

Rubber tube on the front so no damage if it touches the body.  Also good for water off the wheels and tyres..

Great for getting water out of the nooks and crannies, and for blowing off garage dust if your car is not under a cover.

Haven't tried to actually ry the entire car off with it, but if you have a good water repellent sealer on the paintwork I'm sure it will probably do the job.

Could you add some kind of filter to eliminate the possibility of it sucking in some dirt and then blasting your paint with it?
