Can I not delete one of my own posts on here? Weird.

Definitely a more precise shifting feel. Going to have to get used to the increased effort. Not quite S2000 perfect but getting closer.

This makes me want to replace more of the boring black parts with this color.

Center Console Paint to match

Haven't updated this in a while so here's what I've been up to. Attempted to DIY. Spent hours on sanding and prepping. Time consuming but no issues. Laid down several layers of good primer. No issues. Paint was a disaster. I'm picky so fish eyes and runs in the paint wouldn't fly. Sand back down. Prime and try again. I ended up spending enough on paint that it would have cost me the same to bring it to a body shop in the first place. Lesson here is if you have metallic paint this can't be professionally done with a rattle can. Bring it to a body shop. $200 later I had this and it was perfect...

Hardtop

Added a hardtop this summer and never removed it once. I drove around trying to convince myself I was driving a Cayman. Actually just like the look and the fact you don't see many Boxster Hardtops.
