What I need to get is a new set of screw drivers. Mine are all mix matched. And I only have one Phillips, and it'* really old, my dad gave it to me when I was a kid. Guess I'll have to give it to my son.

I started this a while back. It goes for a while and then drifts back a few pages until someone digs it up again.

I also have a air drill, right angle. It'* a bit slow, but nice for getting in to those tight places.

ive had to make a few tools, mostly for the quads and mostly because the oem kawasaki ones are more ridiculous priced than the gm ones. had to buy a fuel pressure gauge last night because my old one quit on me for some reason. nothing is better than being right in the middle of working on something and thinking something is really wrong with the vehicle and its just the tool messing with you
