If you insist! Here is said battery.... notice how fresh and clean it is?
Also, my newly erected, clearly not finished ( these things take time ya know) garage!

I curbed my brand new TechArt about 2 weeks after getting it because I lost sight of the fact that the back end of the car is wider than the front... Still need to touch it up.

NW corner. Just had some insulation delivered today so that’s the next step. If it manages to dry out around here, I’ll get the disaster area that is my yard fixed from the construction phase. That was a damn disaster.

Was it not working properly, again?
Correct. Had excessive crankcase pressure and JR helped me diagnose it...No more oil pushing out of my CAM cover (bank 1) or the CAM Bore cap (bank 2)...Garage floor has been dry ever since. I can feel the motor seems happier, placebo effect?

Needed to get outside and waste some gas...

Took a break from painting in the garage and drove both the Mini and the 996 to get both really warmed up and just...driven. About 10 miles for the mini and about 30 for the 996. Not quite car washing weather, but close.
