what's in your frunk/toolkit?

got to get out for a drive today - hrrmph. i kind of like the warmer weather in december. anyway, i cleaned out the frunk and repacked the toolkit.

this got me to wondering what everyone else keeps as far as tools and emergency stuff in your boxster.

for me:
toolkit with standard porsche tools plus 3/8" drive socket wrench, socket extension, a set of torx sockets and allen head sockets, 8 zip-ties.

then i put the toolkit in the spare tire pocket along with the oil filter removal socket and extra serpentine belt. i keep a fire extinguisher and the durametric cable behind the spare tire.

when i'm heading out on a trip i also put an extra thing of oil in there.

I have some miscellaneous hand tools in addition to the factory tool kit. I also have the spare belt and a 24mm wrench to replace it. Jumper cables, tire repair plugs and tools, foot pump and a gallon of distilled water that fits perfectly on the ledge next to the spare.

First Aid Kit

I also keep a first aid kit in the frunk... Just behind the spare tire next to the stereo amplifier.
