        I just got the spill free funnel and was waiting for fan to kick on to call done with bleeding but my fans must kick on at higher temp because I know they work. So when I reach 212 on blue driver, I boil over. Decided to kill at 195 when bleeding if upper rad hose is hot

          I bought a lot of 255 used sockets off eBay to complete some of my socket sets.

            Bought a 21 piece disc brake caliper service set off of eBay.
            Not sure if it’s going to be any good but it was 20 dollars and free shipping so I thought why not.
            The case is really crappy but the tool itself seems pretty solid, guess I’ll find out!

                a wire-stripper. Much needed even tho it’s taken more wires than insulation since its use.

                  My wife ended up buying me this pair of Sheffield needle nose wire stripper, crimpers from Walmart a while back for like 18 bucks or something.
                  Honestly they’ve become my favorite / go to pair for wireing.

                    I picked up a few new toys off amazon.
                    I grabbed the Otc oil and trans pressure kit. Now I can check whether or not I need to buy an oil pump for the car or can just get away with a timing kit lol. It’s been something I’ve been meaning to pick up for a while now.

                    I bought both the 3/8 and 1/2 cdi torque wrenches. We will see how they hold up in the shop. They seem very similar to my snap on lbs-in granted it is the same company but the head design’s different. I snagged a set of 1/4″ impact with this spring magnet thingy inside. I love them for dash work so far. I’ll get pics of that set Monday I guess lol.

                    I grabbed the long shank lisle whiz wheel tool too. I’ve done a lot of dodge truck water pumps lately and this would make quick work and life much easier than being a contortionist with the short shank I have now. I love buying tools buy my lovely accountant doesn’t like it much ?

                      Last tools I bought was two torque wrenches from Harbor Freight, a 1/4″ and a 1/2″. I VERY rarely use a torque wrench, but I was replacing the knock sensors on my 5.3 Chevy truck. I also got some TekTon brand impact sockets from Amazon to go with my DeWalt impact gun.

                          I recently purchased an Autel MD802 scanner that identified why my 2009 Hyundai Accent was displaying an airbag light on my instrument panel. I made this purchase due to a dealer wanting to due just the scan at a ridiculous price! Not only did this particular scanner identify the problem, it also cleared the code thereby turning the light off. This event took place about a month ago. Fortunately the car is running like new with no unwanted code lights!!! And, the price of admission was under $100 with free labor provided by me!

                            I bought an undercarriage cleaner from Best Car Gurus. IT is bets to keep the car’s undercarriage clean to avoid rust build up

                                  We recently acquired this work truck and a new set of wrenches for the off-site jobs. Needed a place to keep and secure the tools so I ordered this Lund steel storage toolbox:
