    What, you don't have a 24-inch #2 Phillips driver? I bought one for adjusting headlights, but have found other uses for it, too, like adjusting cabinet doors above my head.

    Although if memory serves, those door handles are held in with hex bolts, in which case I would end up using my 24-inch 1/4"-drive extension.

    There's always a way to get something done if you have the right tool(s). For example, I just ordered an electric ratchet in order to reach a particularly troublesome bracket on my Chrysler. And I didn't know about drill bit extensions until recently. As I gain more experience, I realize that usually the answer to "How the heck am I supposed to do that?" is "Find the right tool and buy it." LOL

    Exactly...I think its the law of nature that no matter what the project is, you will be buying another tool before you're done... awesome you bought that allen wrench set with 20 sizes...surprise you have one thats 1 size smaller and one thats 1 size larger than you need..

    I do remember the first tool I bought for the Delorean was a pressure tester for the fuel injection...next was a 8mm socket..cause, it was the one that I seem to keep losing..

    Oh, I forgot to mention a bit of good news: While running the engine to tweak the fuel mixture, the coolant temperature went up, the fans came on, the temperature went back down, and the fans turned off. This happened twice, the sign of a properly-functioning cooling system. After everything had cooled down, I popped the cap off of the expansion tank and had a look at the fluid. It's still green!
