    Good tools are great! A set of metric wrenches,you can almost wear out,if they don't snap off.

    Ask Santa for ONE WRENCH. A long Snap-On 10 mm combo and don't loan it out!
    Flank drive! It is the best wrench.... ever,IMO.

    Sometimes,a HF tool is not good enough.

    We can help you with repairs and diagnostics,but you have to do the work your self.
    WTF does this thing do,etc.
    Maybe a 10 X 12 double box.
    You can build your tool selection as you need 'em.
    I been doing car work all of my life and there is over 1,000 pounds of them in my basement.
    Gotta have a box to put 'em in!
    OK,I'm bragging.
    TOOLS!!!!


    You just cannot work on your Supra with a sharp stick and a rock.

    And my wife wonders why I have TWO rolling boxes with tool chests on top of them.

    I would have had a third set, but it was stolen by a roommate with a nose candy problem......
