    What did I do to it? Drove it. Took the cover off and drove it after sitting for three weeks. Sunny, with a high near 45. The summer tires will be fine, there is no salt on the road, and the mechanicals will appreciate it (and so will I).

    Would love to get my car out of the garage and drive it, but weather in Ohio is too volatile. In Feb, I need to get it to my indy shop for some work.

    I know, that's why I just had to do it. Was only 40 miles but 40 more than i would have had to wait until March to get. In the past she was mothballed from mid-December to end of February but with this Global Warming I can cherry pick certain days in that time interval. Today it was actually 51 and sunny and clear and dry and the car felt perfect.

    Re: What did you do to your 981 today?

    Used the air compressor to help someone with a flat in the parking lot at work - I didn't remember it had it, but one of their wheel nuts was stuck (partly stripped) and we couldn't inflate it with our compressor. It blew the fuse on the (oldish) truck, but his friends car ran it fine, though it really slowed down around 30 psi. And the hose got surprisingly hot.

    Not an NSX quality air compressor, but surprisingly useful for a little plastic piece.

    Got my baby all cleaned up after all the rain she's been rolling around in, here in CA (first real rain in what feels like 10 years)!

    Excuse the garage. Ripping it down and building a new one (2 car + 4 car workshop with a lift ) is on my to-do list, but other projects like 1940s knob&tube wiring and water pooling against the house foundation have kind of taken over my initial plans... Love the place, but you sure do pay a lot of money for somewhere to park your car around here...

    Disconnected the battery since I no longer drive the car. It's tucked peacefully away in the garage.

    Re: What did you do to your 981 today?

    Fired up the 981 and took him for a spirited run in the rain around the city. Whoo hoo!

    Question: the suspension seems really nice and firm. How would I know if it has the X73 Sport Suspension option? I know I can run the VIN but any other way?

    Thanks!

    I drove it to work over the windy and treacherous Hwy 17 to Santa Cruz. NICE!

    Easy. If not PASM (no shock button on the console), it's either base or X73, and there's a huge difference in wheel gap. With the X73, there's less than an inch of fender gap. The base looks like a 4x4 by comparison. Hope you have the former. He he.

    Thanks Eric. I think the X73 lowers the suspension by 20mm, PASM by 10mm. I had the dealer pull the options off the VIN and it does not appear to be X73 UNLESS the previous owner added it on afterwards. The suspension feels super tight. You can see the gap in avatar. I thinks it's base. I may change it but for the time being it's great.

    Re: What did you do to your 981 today?

    Tx. Yes - I figured. But the base suspension actually feels really good. Not quite a stiff as the X73 in my Spyder but good enough and appropriate for a city with crappy roads.

    I put my CGTS on the lift mostly just because I can. I inspected the underside, touched up a couple of scrapes on the front fascia where it catches on driveways, and cleaned the inside of the wheels. I also dressed the tires, so much easier when it's off the ground.

    Re: What did you do to your 981 today?

    This was the first sunny day since purchasing the car a week ago. So I installed the clear side marker lights from Suncoasticon. It took less than five minutes which included time to take photos and go back into the house to get the parts once the original lights were removed.

    It was 60+ here in Michigan this weekend. But I didn't have time to drive it much. I did drove though - about 30 feet. Out of the garage to warmup the engine for half-an-hour, and shoot a new installation video for Memory Module with nice natural light.

    Here's the video:
