No issue with the wind deflector taking off at this kind of speed?

To clarify, that was 150 miles at the posted speed limits. Always at the posted speed limits

Changed a burned out rear side marker bulb. Not just any ol' bulb I had laying around which would fit, (like a 4.6 watt "194" I had in my bulb stash), but the exact right bulb I made a special trip to the auto parts store to track down, a 3.0 watt specification "2821" (perhaps originally strictly specified for the application by Dr. Ferdinand. )

You've just got to love it when you can properly repair a high performance German automobile with a common part from the shelf of an auto parts store. (A rare occurrence indeed!)

I got the 18" replica GT3 wheels for my black aerokit car back from the wheel shop. Who needs a truck?

I drove it to work with the top down. The outside temperature was around 7C (or ~45F) here in Sweden.

Drove the Boxster 130 miles up the 99 north. I love using every chance I get to drive it.

Installed new SS braided brake lines, new speed bleeder valves and bled the brakes once finished. As I was bleeding the brakes, the frunk fell down on top of the Motive Bleeder that I had sitting in there and put a small ding in the hood. I had a guy come out to hammer the ding out and you could never tell it was ever there.

Next project is to install Pedro's TechnoBrace and refinish the lug nuts.

Finally got around to cleaning and waterproofing my soft top before the hardtop goes back on for the winter. Used 303 Cleaner and Renovo UltraProofer. Brushing on the waterproofer was oddly satisfying.

Went all last week with no headlights.

I had seated in there and put a little damage in the bonnet. I had a guy come out to sort the damage out and you could never tell it was ever there.

Today I Plasti dipped my scuffed rims Gunmetal Grey. I think they turned out well, and will be fine until the budget lets me buy their replacements.

I removed the hood crest and polished it. Cleaned the hood crest gasket, cleaned all the crap that collected under it and waxed the area. Had to get two new nuts from the dealership to bolt down the crest again.
