  1. DIY: Do It Yourself
    THIS IS A GROUP PROJECT (hopefully!) I have seen (and used) many different lists of tools required to work on our cars. Unfortunately, they are either lean (like @Mango's), or they are a long conversation with a tool or two in each post. I thought I would see if we could collate what we know...

    Edit: I WANT TO MAKE THIS VERY CLEAR: I did not post this in order to slag on the company, dispute their claims of accuracy or quality, or debate their chosen method to determine torque. I posted it for 2 reasons: #1 - Our society tends to associate the replacement of mechanical parts to...
