Drove mine for the first time since September. Remembered why I bought it.
Also remembered why I brought my phone. Nav systems have come a long way since 2004...

The minor mods on my car probably don't offset the 110K miles of wear, and the 5 speeds of the Tip aren't a match for a 7-speed PDK. So I'll watch out for street challenges in future (and in heavy traffic on PCH, TargaBoy just made an *** of himself as I ignored his efforts to provoke me to hit the loud pedal)
many people die annually on pch as you know. worse even since the fires and road work up here. best to not go over 50. ever.

Here's an example of the space limitations in the 996 with a similar fuel cell and air jacks (power steering is missing from this pic):
Interesting. I'm surprised that there isn't a rectangular fuel cell that could fit in the frunk (without air jacks), but air jacks in that location clearly nix the idea. I also would be hesitant to cut/weld the body a lot as you mentioned, and would probably just opt for the more expensive option as you have. Very nice!

Put on lamni-x film on the headlights. Got the "tint" version to take the edge off the chrome reflection. I am happy with the asthetic results, thunderstorms today so no feedback on the headlights output penalty.

Passenger side done:



Both done:

Replaced drivers side rocker trim piece, found and solved clunk on passenger front (torqued swaybar endlink), installed a new serpentine belt and installed an EvoMS intake.

Next up, finding and fixing boost leaks.
