I continued cleaning the brake pad & rotor dust off the front wheels in prep for a quick repaint. When I uncovered the wheel size, I noticed the front wheel I was working on is 8J, so I was thinking; sweet the PO put four 8J wheels on the car (a PCA instructor use to own it, so this was not too far fetched to think).
Out of curiosity, I took off one of the rears, 7J.....damn. It turns out when I had the tires mounted, the tech probably batch processed my car (all wheels off, all tires off, all tires mounted...etc) instead of one at a time, and mixed one set of wheels/ tires. I guess the up side to this is that I'm now going to have all the tires dismounted to do a proper paint job on the wheels.

Oh and I also picked up a M10-1.5 stud that mysteriously went missing from the turbo's hot side. Now I can get it mounted back in the car.

yeah you can repack the front wheel bearings.

I've got my 944T back from the body shop and it looks fantastic now. Will take some pictures soon but I am really happy with it.

Today, and it seemed to take all of today, I replaced the washer reservoir on the Silver Rose. Because it has headlamp washers it uses the larger reservoir. BRUTAL.

A tip though: using a hacksaw will save you lots of aggravation in getting the old one out.

5 hours into 968 spoiler install.

Fits like a glove. Off to HomeDepot to buy some proper mounting hardware; triple check fitment and then start on the GT-Racing bumper.

I seem to work on my car every day.

Two new A-Arms
New Rear A-Arm bushings
Oil Change
New K&N Air Filter (the one that fits in the airbox, not the conical thing)
New Alarm/Keyless entry system
Fixed the door lock actuators
Try to fix the tach (seems to stop working every couple of days)
Check the timing belts
Bleed the cooling system
Give the car a good wash
Top off the gas tank
Go for a long drive

Finish up the alarm/keyless entry system
Track down alarming noise coming from the steering rack
Track down alarming noise coming from the exhaust
Get the wheels aligned
Figure out why fuel leaks from the gas cap every time I go out for a spirited run (something about a plugged drain tube)
Wash the car
Go out for a long drive
