Still going well with no significant issues. I feel that it is completed as a 'project car' and future work will be maintaining '04 Boxster rather than recovering a flood car.
Some fall foliage along the Illinois River this morning:

Very well done. Oklahoma looks great this time of the year. Especially with a Boxster in the foreground.

I went out wandering the back roads with the SE late in the afternoon. Eventually the pavement gave way to gravel and dirt. As I was taking pictures it occurred to me that I forgot to do the bumper plugs and the rear spoiler is a little mis-aligned. Darn, maybe tomorrow. Pardon the ugliness...

Here it is with the wrong wheels on. I never got around to replacing the front tires with the Indy500s. The old front tires need to go. I remembered, too late to order them for a trip, so I just swapped another set of wheels on temporarily.

you have such beautiful roads and scenery there. here in central/western OK it's mostly flat straight roads with a stoplight or stopsign every 1 mile

Just read this as I wait for my lunch in Mena, Arkansas. About to start the Talimena Scenic Byway. One of my favorite OK roads. ...the long way home.
Edit: Home now and really enjoyed the drive. My favorites are in Eastern Ok, but it looks like there are some roads to explore across the west too. https://flavorverse.com/10-scenic-drives-in-oklahoma/ Quartz Mountain, Ok-8... The Talimena is probably worth a Saturday day trip with a good stop for lunch.
