New Guy from SF East Bay

Been lurking for a few weeks and just picked up a 2000 Boxster S with 89k on the clock. I've found the site extremely helpful and look forward to contributing soon. My goals are to track the car occasionally and take it up Redwood Rd/Skyline whenever possible. The car is pretty mint and previous 2 owners have taken great care of her adding tasteful mods such as a new glass top, clear/red tails, short shift kit and a Fister Modded exhaust. In the past week I've thrown on new rotors, more aggressive pads, stainless lines and brake fluid flush. Also, de-snorkled and am thinking about plastidipping the wheels black. I'm headed to the NASA HPDE at Sonoma Raceway on June 18th so if you're out there come say Hi.

I thought all the hardtops had glass windows? Maybe you mean fiberglass.

I'm liking the look of the wheels. I'll probably dip them tomorrow. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
