Porsche Boxster Alternator Replacement

Porsche Boxster Alternator Replacement

The alternator died on the Boxster so I decided to tackle this project myself.  I have never done a major repair to any of my cars, but figured I’d give the alternator replacement a try.  All of the articles on the internet and in my tech manual made it look pretty easy, so what the hell?

I decided to document the project via a video, so here it is:

PCA Auto Cross – Another First Place for Me!

PCA Auto Cross – Another First Place for Me!

I attended the Porsche Club of America Riesentöter Region Auto Cross. It was a prety good crowd of cars, maybe 60+ or so. Considering the Memorial Day Holiday, not a bad turnout.

I ended up placing First in my car class. This is the second first place for my in a row for an AutoCross, so I’m pretty happy.

I had Kim stationed on the D50 taking pictures and I had in-car video as well. Here is the link to the in-car videos.
For now, the stills will have to do…

PCA Riesentöter Region Auto Cross

I attended a Porsche Club of America Riesentöter Region AutoCross on November 6, 2005.

I ended up taking 1st Place in Class F, so I am pretty happy about that. First time I have ever placed in AutoCross and only the second time I have placed in any race.

Pictures and in-car video are in the gallery. Enjoy…

Brake Caliper Paint

Brake Caliper Paint

The brake calipers on my Porsche Boxster were looking pretty bad. I don’t know if it was due to some type of cleaner I used on them or what, but they looked gray and faded and generally not up to snuff.

After doing some research, I decided on using some G2 Caliper Paint to spruce them up.

Here is a link to all of the pictures of the paintjob.
