It's a beautiful day and everyone is out driving...except for me.

It's a madhouse out there, so I thought a lazy Sunday spent detailing the 986's interior and cleaning the garage sounded much nicer
That darn wind won't cooperate, though. Why does the wind always blow into the garage?

Today was the first wash of the season, to get all the dirt off from my last drive in December. It's been too cold to wash it since! Then off for the first drive of the season. I couldn't stop grinning!

Went to get some new lug bolts to replace my security ones. I also needed a plastic clip. Couldn't resist this photo opportunity

Well, this was actually on Sunday and it may not look like it in this picture, but it was 60deg so I took the Boxster out of winter storage for a couple hour drive.
I even had the top down for a while.

Of course this is Minnesota, so the forecast is for 5-10" of snow the end of this week.

Hey, thanks! It's OEM Porsche. It is the AeroKit II front bumper with a 996 GT3 lip spoiler. I already had found the AeroKit II side skirts, then I found the bumper with the lip spoiler online from a guy removing all the mods before selling his Boxster. I felt pretty lucky to find it because I have not seen many for sale used.
Here is a better pic of the front bumper from a couple years ago.

Just won (stole) a 3 spoke steering wheel and airbag on eBay for $319.44!!!

I can't wait to get it dyed black and installed!
It's got some light scratches on the airbag, but I can take care of that easy.

Drove it to the gym and back, then installed my clear side markers. Going in for a water pump this week

Back on Friday I took the car out for the first time in over a month.

Also that same day, it turned over 100,000 miles. Officially old now?

While I was replacing a bulb in the rear I decided to remove both lenses in the rear and clean all the crap out of the body and around the lenses and inspect the seals. I feel better that the area is clean now. There was some debris, but mostly dust and caked dirt back there.
