I've started getting my new (to me) Lapis Blue to a point where I'm excited about it. Here I've polished part of it, and put the 18" Carreras on.





There's still more work to be done, but I'm pretty happy so far.

Yeah, I used to have a Seal Grey one that was the same way. When all cleaned and polished, I think Lapis Blue looks the best. For day to day driving, Seal Grey, all the way.

I generally know where I am Fred but I don't always know what day it is! Here is a shot of Mount McKinley on the way to Hong Kong last week

Nice view BruceH. It reminded me of one of my old photos I came across recently of my office window years ago along the Macedonia-Serbia border. I get uncomfortable if I get much higher than a few thousand feet AGL though.

^ Now that's funny. Never crossed my mind to dress up differently for one of those topless occasion. Can imagine the cops surrounding me in a flash, "hands in the air", which bank have you robbed today Sir?

While at it, here goes my Best Boxster (Boxer whatever) Pic of the month. Wait till it loads fully you love this one

This model doesn't seem to show the IMS bearing falling apart.

This is the design I am looking forward.. somehow very exotic.
Thoughts?

I might add a wing to the list after the boot / trunk in fiberglass swap.
Which should look something like that:

Took some glamour shots of the Lapis Blue today. Let me know what you think.



Roughly the same angle, but with the HDR filter on the camera:
