    So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets: http://bit.ly/2PNfHLS

    Chris did exactly what I have to do to a muffler and gas tank on 2008 Chevy 2500 Express Van. Thank you so much! Most important thing is to change the gas tank outdoors because of the fumes, and loved the technique of using penetrating oil on those delicate plastic fittings, hunting the blown fuses, clamping vise grips on a metal fuel line to gently pry the stubborn plastic fittings with screw drivers, and the drive-on ramps. That van weighs a ton! You saved me a major hassle, and I thank you..
