I was only correcting him on the seats. Don't have one of those whine boxes with a tensioner to worry about.

To get my half shafts out I had to buy a socket from the snap on truck (33mm). For the low price of $43 for one socket. IDK about you guys but I don't like to walk near my car without a 3/8" air ratchet, a 1/2" impact, and a can of PB Blast. Otherwise when I'm working on the interior my door panel remover do-hickey is worth its weight in gold.

There'* a handy tray at the bottom in front of the radiator that I found my missing screwdriver when I lost it several months ago, I'm deaf and I couldn't hear any rattling or whatever a screwdriver in a roomy tray makes. My mom kept hearing something but couldn't pinpoint it.

Oh do-hickey!

Since we are chatting about the shield...I hate those things. They keep you from being able to clean the motor from underneath and like we've mentioned..they catch everything.

Personally I smile when I drop something and hear it click clank clunk and hit concrete. You know it went all the way through. That plastic makes a loud noise and you cringe thinking you have to pull it again.

don't forget about those suspension knuckle nuts and bolts. I think 24 for the nut and 21 for the bolt.
I've been having fun with those lately. Finally got the last 2 out. I hate salt.
