Not a great deal to report as STILL waiting for the bodyshop to be able to fit me in.
Bodyshops are like cars: Cheap, Fast, Good - choose 2.
Had a gearbox issue where it was very difficult to engage 5th or reverse when the box was warm. 4th to 5th at speed requires a lot of care to not get 3rd by accident. I thought it might be a clutch issue (uh-oh £500 part and 24 hours labour to change) and I found a slight weep on a clutch flexi in the engine bay but no loss of fluid.
£70 for a replacement hose from Porsche or £30 for a new one to order from Goodridge. 2 weeks later the Goodridge one arrived with a snazzy red plastic coating over the braid (couldn't resist) and a sticker on the invoice showing it was made the week before to order. My local Indys fitted it and bled the clutch for me for free as a favour - but the problem still persisted and the gearstick was still flapping about like a BBQ cover on a windy night.
Had a couple of days off over half term and popped into my mate's garage to get the car on his 4-post lift and take a look at the rear shift mechanism. Within 30secs I'd found the pin bolt that holds the short shifter to the gear selector shaft was loose so a liberal application of threadlock, nipped it up and problem solved.
Went home - took me about an hour to get there and the fuel light came on - funny that!
The harnesses are a bit restrictive on the road when it comes to visibility so I'm going GT3RS style and having harnesses and seatbelts. Options were 30 year old genuine parts or aftermarket brand new parts - I went for the latter. In red. The rear interior quarter panels need to come off to fit them though. And that means loosening/removing the cage. And that means taking the seats out. And if the quarter panels are out I may as well skin them in black leather with red stitching to match the rest of the interior.
That can wait though - cheeky little trackday planned next week first as I had a day's holiday to use or lose
