How many tools?

How many tools do you have to keep your boxster going?

Inventorying my Stahwille tools set for the insurance people and wondered what y'all had out there. I would like to know.

A lotta tools acquired over a lifetime of wrenching. I never really took inventory though. Many of my tools are obsolete now that better solutions have been developed. I probably need a box-star wrench for quick seat removal... or if I were smarter I would replace the lame star fasteners with a std metric hex. Duh!

There is no way I am dragging all of my Boxster tools out and laying them on the floor for a picture, that would take-up way too much time. I have other things to do tomorrow, like replace my rear struts.

Curses, I saw one of the tools I need in your pic!

I was happier being ignorant.

Looks like a shot from an ebay auction!

Before I bought the Boxster, all I ever needed was a hammer, duct tape, pliers and screwdriver. And if none of those worked, I bought a bigger hammer!!

Looking at Kashmir's collection I can see where my collection is going.

I have a lot, but it is always just one less than I need, or so my wife says.

My newest tool. Seems there's no end to what you can get.

Thanks for the thought but I have other vehicles that need the struts replaced so it's worth owning a set.
