I believe the expiration date on the film was 2015.

For processing, I use flexicolor LORR chemicals in a warm bath kept at 103 degrees. 3:15 for development 5 inversions every 30 seconds, 6:30 bleach, wash, 6:30 fix, wash and then stabilizer.

The basic image itself is out of focus. So no matter how the rest of the process went, you're not going to get decent results.

Actually, it looks to me as if the left side edge markings are out of focus, meaning the negative wasn't flat to the camera photographing it. Doesn't keep the negative itself from holding an out of focus image, of course...

Thank you for the details. One last question.( ok it's two ) 😀
You say your warm water bath is 39C (103F), what temperature is the developer?
Do you use a thermometer to check the temperature of the developer chemical?

The developer is the same temperature (at least going into the tank) as the bath water. The answer to your second question is "it depends." Most of the time I set up the water bath with the bottles of chemicals in it and give it an hour or more to warm up. Experience tells me that this is more than enough time for the developer to be the same temperature as the bath. If for some reason I want to process as soon as possible, however, I'll check the developer temperature periodically until it's ready.
