Washed the car. The pollen here has been horrible, there was a thick layer of yellow all over it, it was nasty. Tested my new foam gun with Gyeon foam, which worked fantastic. Then washed it with Gyeon Bathe+, 2-bucket method of course. Can't recommend these products enough, especially if you've got a ceramic coating.

Garage
Fixed my Sector 111 4Chip Guards.
The sound deadening layer had de-laminated from the carbon fibre piece on both sides.
Shinoo had postulated that this was due to the cold, and he's probably correct as I think this phenomenon has only been experienced by people in colder climates.
I guess I can't really fault him much, since he's in SoCal.

Anyway, one bolt was seized on each side, so I had to repair in place. The other bolts came out with some urging, allowing good access to the entire surface. Applied Gorilla Glue and held together with bulldog clips and paper clips around the perimeter, and mashed rags between the tire and chip guard for added pressure.

Fingers crossed it will hold when I remove the pressure, as otherwise I have to drill those bolts out and remove the guards entirely.

Count Biscione.

Took it on the Putty Road, northwest of Sydney, for the first time. Wow what a beautiful road! There were a few overtaking lanes which meant I didn't have to spend a lot of time behind slow vehicles.

On the way there, I had to stop at a series of red lights in an 80 km/h zone where I was at the front. The Gods of 0 to 80 were on my side, today
