Hey!! Have you had to buy a tool that you only needed once (or had to modify a preexisting tool for a task you've only had to do once) for your 9-gen? Something other than an oxygen sensor socket. If so tell us. And being that this is the internet the standard rule is in effect; post with Pics or it didn't happen.

I also wanted to share a recent purchase I made with y'all, the Power Probe III (Power Probe, Inc.).

Just socket extensions because how everything is tucked away.

Clip puller rather than just a screwdriver.
Plastic trim tool rather than screwdriver.

Not for the car, but for the bike(s), yes. Rebuilding carburetors and fork tubes often necessitated cobbled together 'tools' that did the job.

For putting new races into fork tubes, I made a 'punch' from a long piece of appropriately thick threaded rod and nut.

Cleaning carbs jets without scratching the insides of them was done successfully with a whisk from a broom, and carb cleaner.

Just picked up a heat gun from Home Depot today. Lately I've been building circuits for stuff I wanna put in my car.

I saw a hand tool at Home Depot today (after watching a YouTube video last night) that's for cutting Plexiglas. Considering how soft Plexiglas (plastic) is, I think my box cutter will do for my cutting needs.

Got a "Emergency Brake Cable Release Tool" delivered yesterday (Lisle 44220). To be honest, I'm not 100% sure I can even use it on our cars, lol. Here's to wishful thinking.
