Do True DIY with Mobile Toolkit for Your Project Car

Posted on

Working on a car yourself is easy. . . as long as you have the tools to do it. Most people don’t have access to a solid collection of basic hand tools for vehicle wrenching, which means doing the DIY job is a nonstarter. If you’re one of those people, change that with a suite of mobile tools.

A good toolbox is all you need to start working on your car. Most cars don’t require special tools to perform simple tasks like changing the oil or changing the brake pads. All you need are a few sockets, a ratchet and a basic knowledge of how cars are put together.

When I first started working on cars, this was the type of tool I used. And it’s not like I’m working on something simple. Most of the work on me BMW M5 and 850i not very easy, but the tools I use are no more complicated than usual.

Getting a set of mobile tools like this means you can take your hardware with you, whether you’re traveling in your project car or going to help a friend in need. The handle on top of the box makes life a lot easier in the long run, and can save you if you crash on the road. Trust me, I know from experience.

Choosing the right toolbox for your needs is very important. It can mean the difference between getting a job done and having to run to your local Harbor Freight to pick up a tool you don’t have. I like Set of 239 pieces Gearwrench, as it has the metric sized wrench and socket I needed to fix my heavily damaged German car. It also has multiple extensions, an L-wrench, and even a pair of spark plug sockets, which means I can do pretty much any job I need in a car like my E30.
