    What tools do you use?

    Hi, I'm building up my collection of tools. I am just wondering what is needed to do most of the work/modding that I am going to be doing. Here's what I have.

    10-18mm box wrenches
    10-17mm sockets
    10-15, 17, 19mm deep sockets
    10-17mm nut drivers
    rachets + 6" extension
    needle nose pliers/wire cutter
    10 peice screwdriver set
    Ironclad gloves (like Mechanix)

    I may need a 19mm box wrench, and a 2nd 14mm box wrench.
    I should probably buy an oxygen sensor wrench.
    Any sizes that you end up using a lot? I've seen 10, 12, 14, and 17 the most I think. Don't know if the 16 and 18 are even worth having.

    Those are pretty much it to get you around most of the car. I would also suggest a good torque wrench and breaker bar. Jack stands, ramps, jack, sparkplug socket, 1/2" ratchet for the rear diff, and I believe it's either a 21 or 22mm socket for the tranny drain bolt.
