Tools

I finally did it. I bought a tool chest, and stuff to go in there

I always was afraid of tools, because it would show my incompetence, and remove any doubt about it.....

Tom's influence is showing here. I can do some thoroughly unimportant stuff now, like taking off the splitter and clean it

Half the splitter looks better now, as well as the license plate holder.

Don't be too hard on yourself ;-) Tools look great, enjoy them.

Oh! Wow! Congratulatiuons! Next time you come to Europe you can show me how to do this... my front splitter needs some panel beating... together, we might be able to do it.

(How high do you need to lift the car up to remove the front splitter, actually?)

I got some wheel dollies to give me more space around the car.

Too much snow and salt on the road, keeps the Spyker n the garage. The Lotus has to brave the elements, when my wife is gone with the Saab. The Lotus, even with the all-season tires is sheer undrivable under these conditions
