Setting up a tool box just for my SLK.

Please help by posting the tool, size and what you have used it for.

If you all respond I will compile the list at the end and repost it.

Thanx.

Antique wood box
1923 Union tool co., 8 drawer. (Gerstner type)
Old world car, old world box type of theme.

Not a regular type of tool box set up, just tools for the SLK.

Examples; #12 Torx bit for the spark plug cover. (If thats what size it is).

Or 18 mm socket for the lug nuts. (If thats what size it is).

Trans nuts, door panel caps, etc.

Ill fit up some tools this weekend and post it.

* Oh BTW I didn't want a full ratchet set for example as you only need a few sizes.
