  • So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

  • Damn, I could use a tank like that, inboard fuel tank filler in the rear, and plastic, no worry of the damn ethanol ruining it, been trying to find what I could use on my van, fuel delivery would be an issue, don't use electric fuel pump.

  • I know its probably not your top priority, but bringing a car back from the dead is probably a really good thing environmentally. Despite its shitty consumption, the emissions involved in making a new car are huge, so keeping an old car ticking really does a lot
