After a couple of mishaps in my newly tagged MKIV - I am adding to my list.
Besides the basic tools, Flashlight, minature self contained battery jumper/air compressor, fix a flat, etc. I have added a scissor jack 3 1/2 inch low height (autozone) - that was added after I near lost the left front wheel on the highway ( I love the FFR knock off wheels the lug nut cover kept all 5 nuts in the cover) - a state policeman stopped and had a scissor jack in his trunk - we fixed it and was on the way. The average jack AAA might carry won't fit under your car. I swapped out the 4 sided lug wrench for a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 3/4 socket - the 4 handle took up too much room!
Last weekend I was at the Ocean City MD hotrod show - 132 miles from home and snapped a throttle cable. Fixed with a small fitting from Ace hardware and safety wire.
So this week I am adding a spare cable, safety wire, spare lug nuts....and still thinking of other items.
And if all else fails - I also received my AAA card in the mail Saturday!
Spent some time on the track at willow springs one day. Driving home, no interior or guage lights - blown fuse. Also, one Thursday night at Irwindale drags, made a quick friend with someone who needed a 20Amp fuse.
I try to consentrate on parts that maybe hard to get and most likly to fail, a alt. belt, thick film module and a clutch cable. Also a few simple tools. I plan to add some fix a flat next. I'm curious as to other's experiences with diffrent brands of fix a flat.
FFR# 4834K, 302 EFI, 3.55, FMS Y 303 heads, E303 cam scorpion rockers, 4 link with coilovers
Have a bag with a compressor and tire plugs, various sockets, pliers, adjustable wrenches, screwdrivers, allen wrenches, some wire, connectors and crimp tool, fuses, cheapo multi-meter, and a flashlight. Probably left something out. Never leave without my cell phone and AAA card.
