Started with a wrench roll, so I can store a set of wrenches and wrap them up tightly without rattling. Then wait for a good sale (after Christmas or after Fathers day when they clear out the special sets made for those holidays).
Then I bought a tool roll and a couple small socket sets, 1/4 and 3/8" drive. I then bought the longest breaker bar I could find and a socket to fit the lug nuts.
A wrench set and 3/8" drive socket set will do mostly everything and its cheaper to buy a whole set than a few individual wrenches or sockets.
So when I crawl under to drain my oil, I check the starter bolts to make sure I have sockets to fit, same with the alternator when I'm on top.
I found my caliper bolts took a big torx, had to go buy that one. So i drove around to a couple automotive stores and gave them the year and model and asked them to bring out one of each caliper bolts their computer listed until I found ones that had a normal hex head and replaced them so I didn't need that special torx bit.
few other things in my picture that are not vehicle maintenance specific such as the GHb and FAK in the bottom right, one of the zipper binders is maps, the other is a vehicle repair manual.
Not really a bad idea changing those caliper pins out, GM locktite's the shit outta them. Cant even count how many bits I've snapped pullin apart rear calipers on chevys (mainly because I'm lazy and use an impact on em). Then again I buy snap-on so they get warrantied once a week.
Whats up with the toilet seat?
I even used an impact bit (craftsman) and its twisted a little.
Potty seat is so my 3 year old daughter could go safely in public restrooms, its nice having the camper on for long trips since we have our own potty. Actually had someone stop and ask if we were needed help when we were pulled off the side of the road to let her go.
