Putting in the carb spacer

I went to my Mustang today to put in the carb spacer.

I'm hoping it will improve hot starts and fuel boil during and after a ride.

I removed the carb and filter. I saw the inside of the intake manifold for the first time ever which was pretty cool (for me). It was surprisingly clean inside!

This is the spacer I put in. It's 1 inch thick.

And voila, one spacer including gaskets.

It sits nicely and there's still plenty of clearing from the hood.

I also added 2 layers of clear coat to my trunk for extra protection. It's a pity that you can now see the paint I didn't remove even better but hey, it's 100 times better than a rusty trunk!

Starting the car went very well. Even though there was no fuel up the line from the pump, I cranked the engine for about 12 seconds and then left it a bit (I waited another 30 seconds because cranking heats certain parts up a lot so you have to take it easy). Then it fired up on the second start and it ran well.

The beer

I had beer at work. Like every Friday. It's a nice thing to end the week with.

Oh, and I didn't make any pictures, sorry. But the beer was nice! :-)

The bird

I spotted this bird of pray from the office today.

I reckon it's a buzzard. Pretty cool to see!

It was a nice day. Maybe spring is finally on it's way!

Paying taxes

I filed my taxes today. Gotta pay a whopping 4 euros. I wonder if they're actually going to bill me. We'll see...

PS: I pay more taxes but I get some back on a monthly basis.

We went to the beach for a little walk and yo sit in the sun. It was very nice.

People are starting to get their beach houses ready for summer. Looks nice.
