The 928 gang is always a blast to hang with it.

A special thanks to Andre, Mike, Alex & Julia for making the hike to Ontario.

Robert, next time we will use service covers when replacing hood struts, I still can't believe that flying strut didn't scratch your paint. Whew.

Mike, I hope you sort out that fuel smell easily. Your car is gorgeous.

Putting that LH harness through the firewall was not fun, damn German's and their precise holes. Thanks for the help boys.

Here is a few pics.

Great Pics Adam. Great friendly group North of the border! Got back no issues at 7:45 pm. Long wait at the border (traffic) going back for at least 30 minutes. Always good to test out the cooling system idling in traffic. Still smelling gasoline. Thanks for the "mini" tech session. Will look at it closer tomorrow.

I was hoping to go but sadly was out of town this past weekend. Sounds like you guys had a blast. Even though I don't have a Shark anymore Adam has grandfathered me into the club lol.

Cheers guys!

The one area we didn't consider.
Glad you found the problem and arrived home without issues.

I may have a similar issue with my FPR.

I will post a cruise video soon, just need to find some time to edit it.
