Today I woke up thinking I was going to go look at vehicles for my mom whose recently been in an accident and instead I got to thinking about working on my car.

The past few days I had pulled the ford emblem off my GT grille and bondo´d and sanded it flat. Today I finally got around to being able to primer it. I put one coat on each side so far.
Then I got to thinking about my cars ass end. I took two screwdrivers and pryed the other emblem off my hatch and sanded the glue off. I then thought about taking my orange reflector off and noticed six little bolts/nuts holding it on. I have three of the nuts off but the other three had rusted, and split apart so I need to get a hacksaw to chop them off.
I wanted to bondo and primer all this at once to make it look better and save myself a little bit of work. I ended up taking off the upper plastic half of hte hatch to reveal all the inner workings of my inside hatch, brake and license plate light.
While I´m doing this I´m thinking about my engine. I got a hold of demonicEGT and we got to talking about the air silencer, and his little project so i hopped in my GT and drove over there. I got my air silencer off now. It is a little louder, especially once VICS opens up those little butterfly valves. I love it. So all in all I think I had a wonderfully car-productive day that´s taught me just that much more about my car. :-]

Is that what that thing is? I wasn´t sure what it was. If I remove it do I have to plug up the hole that is left? If so how would I do that? Thanks. Oh, and today I tough my sister how to drive stick she did pretty good and only stalled twice. I´m going to let her borrow the car while I´m on vacation in Florida.

The air resonator box is useless. You technically dont have to plug up the hole it leaves if you take it off, because it´s under the filter element, but if I were you, I´d either leave it open or have a hose coming out of it leading down to colder air... may as well improve the airflow a little bit.

Unless you´re like me and have a K&N FIPK c/a intake with an RX-7 vaf, which is crazy high flow... I like it a lot :)
